533. Deputy Jackie Cahill asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of Garda cars available in each Tipperary Garda district in each of the years 2013 to 2018 and to date in 2019, in tabular form excluding road policing units; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19667/19]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy will appreciate, decisions in relation to the provision and allocation of Garda vehicles across the various Garda divisions are a matter for the Commissioner in the light of his identified operational demands and the availability of resources. As Minister, I have no direct role in that matter.
I have requested the relevant information from the Commissioner and I will write to the Deputy directly when I receive it.
