My question relates to the cost of providing Army security at Portlaoise prison. This relates to the fact that when the Army was originally deployed to the prison, there was a large number of prisoners. I am interested in finding out the number of prisoners who are specifically secured by the Army presence and whether the need for that presence is under review. As the Tánaiste knows, things have changed dramatically at the prison.
