Hold on. I am not a lawyer, but we know that people are innocent until proven guilty. I am not saying the Senator is wrong, by the way; I agree with him. I want to see further steps to deal with people who are on bail and we know it is under consideration by the Government at the moment. The Senator also wanted to see progress made on the number plate identification system, with which I agree. He welcomed the 230 new high-powered vehicles, which will bring the number to 600. I took a note to remind the Senator that the Garda training college in Templemore has reopened and ongoing recruitment will be taking place.
