429. Deputy Niall Collins asked the Minister for Justice and Equality her views that it is essential to provide certain constitutional office holders with adequate, secure and up-to-date transport services in order to maintain their security at the required level; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [23012/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Deputy will appreciate that arrangements for the maintaining of security for the persons referred to are an operational matter for An Garda Síochána and it would be contrary to established practice to comment in detail on such arrangements. I have no information to suggest that the security of such persons has been compromised in the manner referred to by the Deputy.
