Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy may be aware, the former Director of the Probation Service, Mr Vivian Geiran, recently completed the scoping exercise in question and prepared a report on his findings. I have received the report and I am currently considering the findings therein. My officials are drafting an action plan and will consult on it with other relevant Departments and agencies.

I look forward to publishing the report in the coming weeks so that work with the local community and elected representatives on bringing forward the recommendations of Mr Geiran to improve the quality of life of the residents of Drogheda and the surrounding areas can commence.
