Mr. Durkan Mr. Durkan
147. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the number of killings, non-fatal shootings, beatings or stabbings which have been recorded as being attributable to the activities of organised criminals throughout the country in the past 12 months; if those involved  have been charged in each case; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell:I am informed by the Garda authorities that the crime statistics are not compiled in such a manner as to provide the information sought by the Deputy.
