Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 262, 264 to 266, inclusive, 269 and 270 together.

The Deputy will appreciate that in accordance with the Garda Síochána Act 2005, the administration and management of An Garda Síochána is a matter for the Garda Commissioner.

I have requested a report from the Garda authorities in relation to the matters raised by the Deputy. I will write directly to the Deputy once I receive it.
