340. Deputy Brendan Griffin asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if a copy of a statement given to An Garda Síochána by a person (details supplied) in County Kerry will be made available to that person; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [42851/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The position is as stated in my reply to Parliamentary Question 313 of 17 November 2015.
The person to whom the Deputy refers has been notified of the outcome of the review of her complaint under the Independent Review Mechanism. The person has been informed, amongst other things, of the position of any witness making a statement to An Garda Síochána who subsequently requests a copy of such a statement. As I have previously explained, beyond that, I have, as Minister, no function in relation to the matter raised by the Deputy.
