460. Deputy Carol Nolan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of fraudulent insurance claims made against businesses in counties Laois and Offaly in 2017 and 2018. [18718/19]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I propose to take Questions Nos. 459 and 460 together.
The Deputy will appreciate that crime incidents are not recorded by the Department, as this is a matter for An Garda Síochána.
However, to be of assistance I have been in contact with the Garda Authorities to ascertain whether such statistics are available. I will contact the Deputy directly on receipt of a response.
