Mr. Haughey Mr. Haughey
Mr. Haughey: Statistics kept by the courts and Garda are not classified in such a way as to make available the information sought by the Deputy. Compilation of the information would involve a substantial amount of extra work, and I do not consider that the additional expenses would be justified.
