136. Deputy Dara Calleary asked the Minister for Justice and Equality when compensation will be paid to a person (details supplied) of An Garda Síochána in County Mayo. [10426/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I can confirm to the Deputy  that two applications for compensation under the  Garda Síochána (Compensation) Acts, 1941 and 1945, were made by the person concerned. On 3rd October 2008 and 15th November 2012, authorisations were granted to the claimant on both applications.  In accordance with the Acts, the applicant's legal representative were notified to proceed to the High Court for compensation in respect of each case.  As such, these applications  have been dealt with by my Department and I, as Minister, have no further role in the matter.
