  476. Mr. Gogarty asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if a letter of exemption was issued by gardaí to drivers of vehicles over three tonnes to enable them to use the Kennelsfort Road, Palmerstown, a road subject to the three tonne limit; if his attention has been drawn to the existence of such a letter; and [411] if he will make a statement on the matter. [31395/05]

  Mr. McDowell: I am informed by the Garda authorities that gardaí have not issued a letter of exemption to the drivers of vehicles over three tonnes to enable them to use the Kennelsfort Road, Palmerstown. I am further informed that in May 1996 a letter was supplied by gardaí at Ballyfermot Garda station to the directors of an engineering company acknowledging that their place of business was on Kennelsfort Road.
