Mr. McDowell:I am informed by the Garda authorities that there has been one seizure of crack cocaine in Dublin in 2004 to date. This seizure was made in March in the Rathgar area of the city. The amount of crack cocaine seized was just over two grams in weight. One person is before the courts at present in respect of this offence. To date, no persons have been convicted in 2004 in respect of seizures involving crack cocaine.
