113. Deputy Jim O'Callaghan asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of gardaí in each division who have received firearm awareness training in tabular form. [38173/16]

Answer

Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I propose to take Questions Nos. 112 and 113 together.
As the Deputy will appreciate, it is the Garda Commissioner who is responsible for carrying on and managing and controlling generally the administration and business of An Garda Síochána, including by arranging for the training of its members and civilian staff and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter.
I have requested the information sought by the Deputy from the Commissioner and I will write to the Deputy on receipt of same.
