It is important to be clear that under the Garda Síochána Act 2005 as amended, the Garda Commissioner has responsibility for management of An Garda Síochána and for the allocation and efficient use of Garda resources. This includes responsibility for personnel matters and the distribution of personnel across the various Garda Divisions. 

I have requested a report from the Commissioner in relation to the matter referred to by the Deputy and I will write to him directly when I receive it.
