697. Deputy Catherine Murphy asked the Minister for Justice the number of persons convicted of armed robbery and jailed in 2020; and the number that received prison terms between 10 and 12, 12 and 14 and over 14 years, in tabular form. [12701/21]


Minister for Justice (Deputy Helen McEntee): I referred the Deputy’s question to the Courts Service, who have informed me that it is not possible to collate the data as requested.
There is no unique offence code for armed robbery, as the Court Service categorises offences under the broad title of Theft/Fraud/Robbery/Handling stolen property.
