Leaders' Questions (Resumed).
Pat Rabbitte (Dublin South West, Labour)
In particular, can I ask the Taoiseach about the recommendations in the national consultative committee report, the ESRI report or his own report, where he refers to enhancing the ability of the Garda to combat racist crime? What are the results in that regard? With regard to new recruits, is the intake of non-nationals into the Garda statistically significant? What does the Government propose to do about the national consultative committee recommendation that it should review the Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act 1989?
I refer to the ESRI's conclusion that a fundamental barrier to integration is language and that good provision of language training facilities is essential.
