Department of Justice and Equality
160. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of stolen bikes seized by An Garda Síochána in 2019 and to date in 2020; the number that were returned to owners by An Garda Síochána in the same period; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [37295/20]
The Deputy will appreciate that the Garda Commissioner is responsible for managing and controlling generally the administration and business of An Garda Síochána, and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter.
I have requested information from the Garda Commissioner in relation to this matter but it was unfortunately not possible to compile it in the time available.
I will write to the Deputy directly with the information requested, when it is available.
