292. Deputy Mick Wallace asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of prosecutions for the use of false identities to acquire driving licences in each of the years from 2010 to 2017 and to date in 2018, in tabular form. [9812/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy is aware, under the provisions of the Courts Service Act 1998, management of the courts is the responsibility of the Courts Service, which is independent in exercising its functions, which include the provision of information on the courts system.
However, in order to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have had inquiries made with the Courts Service and the information requested will be forwarded to the Deputy in due course.
