Dáil Éireann - Volume 250 - 16 December, 1970
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Parking Fines Revenue.
Mr. Malone Mr. Malone
191. Mr. Malone asked the Minister for Justice the amount of revenue received in the last financial year in respect of road vehicles from parking fines; and the corresponding figures for the present financial year up to 1st December, 1970, or the nearest available date.
Mr. O'Malley Mr. O'Malley
Mr. O'Malley: Most parking fines are fines-on-the-spot. There are also fines for dangerous parking, and other violations of parking bye-laws. In the time available it was not possible to provide the information sought about the latter type of parking fines.
The total amount remitted to my Department in respect of fines-on-the-spot in the year ended 31st March, 1970, was £123,048. As I mentioned in answer to a parliamentary question on 17th November, there are no final figures available for the amount collected in fines-on-the-spot this year, because of the bank strike. The total amount remitted to my Department in the present financial year up to and including the month of November was £52.299.
