311. Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if any embassies made requests to An Garda Síochána for additional security over recent times; and if those requests were adhered to. [42319/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Deputy will understand that it is not the practice for sound reasons of security to comment on the security or security arrangements of individual diplomatic missions in the State. I can inform the Deputy, however, that An Garda Síochána liaises on an ongoing basis with diplomatic missions.
