I refer to Parliamentary Question No. 253 for answer on 26 February 2019.  I responded at that time to indicate that I would request the relevant information and I undertook to contact you again when a report had been received. The information which I have received is outlined as follows.

The following table, provided to me by the Garda authorities, outlines the number of behavioural warnings issued to children for the time-period 2007 - 2019 (as of 17 July).  As there were fewer than 10 behaviour orders or good behaviour contracts issued per year from 2007 to 2018 and to date in 2019, this data cannot be reported.

It is important to note that this information is operational, subject to change and is accurate as of 17 July 2019.
