86. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality the details of the budgets provided to the Probation Service for dealing with graffiti in the Dublin region; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [7548/17]
The Probation Service operates two graffiti removal projects as part of the Community Service Scheme. One project is based in Dublin and one in Cork. The Probation Service does not have a dedicated graffiti removal project budget. The funding for the graffiti projects is included in the overall community service budget which for 2017 is €2.897 million.
