As the Deputy will be aware in accordance with section 26(1)(b) of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 as amended, the Garda Commissioner has statutory responsibility for the recruitment of civilian staff and I, as Minister, have no role in the matter.

I have asked the Garda Commissioner for the information requested and when it is received I will write directly to the Deputy.
