Question

284. Deputy Claire Kerrane asked the Minister for Justice the number and age of the Garda vehicle fleet in the Roscommon-Longford division by district. [38193/21]

Answer

Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): As the Deputy will be aware, the Garda Commissioner is, by law, responsible for the management and control of An Garda Síochána and for the effective and efficient use of Garda resources, including the Garda fleet.
The allocation of vehicles within An Garda Síochána is made by the Garda Commissioner on the basis of identified operational demands, the availability of resources and is reviewed on a continual basis. As Minister, I have no role in this matter.
I have been provided by the Garda authorities with the following table, which outlines the breakdown by age of the Roscommon-Longford Divisional Fleet, as of 9 July 2021.
