Under Section 26 of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 the Garda Commissioner is responsible for carrying on and managing and controlling generally the administration and business of An Garda Síochána. In addition, the investigation of suspected crimes is an operational matter within the responsibility of the Commissioner and not for me as Minister.  

The information requested is currently being compiled and I will write to the Deputy directly when it is available.
