Answer

Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): I propose to take Questions Nos. 663, 664, 666 and 668 together.
The correspondence of 15 December 2020 referred to by the Deputy was referred to the Garda Commissioner as it concerned matters relating to the internal governance of the association in question. I understand that the Garda Commissioner had arranged to meet the association in this regard.
Insofar as the matters relating to ICT systems are concerned, I understand that these relate to recommendations arising from a strategic and operational review commissioned by the association and that the Garda Commissioner is in correspondence with the association in relation to its implementation. Question No. 664 answered with Question No. 663.
