134. Deputy Barry Cowen asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the cost of running the roads policing unit; the cost for the Dublin region; the number of Garda personnel working for the unit; the number of Garda personnel working for the unit in Dublin; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [18193/19]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is primarily responsible for the effective and efficient use of the resources available to An Garda Síochána in light of his identified operational demands. As Minister, I have no direct role in that matter.
I have requested the relevant information from the Garda Commissioner and will write to the Deputy when a report is received.
