Written answers (Question to Transport)

While my Department is responsible for the drafting of disabled parking regulations, the enforcement of these regulations is a matter for An Garda Síochána, local authority traffic wardens and, in the case of prosecution for non-payment, the Courts Service.

I cannot meet the Deputy's request as my Department does not hold the information concerned.
