Mr. Kenny Mr. Kenny
Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the name and location of each Garda station in County Mayo currently providing a green man service to the public; the stations involved where this system no longer works; the stations where it is proposed to replace this system in 2006 and 2007; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell:I am informed by the Garda Authorities that having reviewed the Public Access Callbox units commonly referred to as the ‘Green Man’ units, which are installed in Sub-District stations, they have concluded that such units are becoming increasingly obsolete as spare parts have become difficult to obtain. I am further advised that plans for replacement of faulty units with latest technology have commenced and replacement will be carried out on a priority basis and to meet local demands.
The following table sets out the list of stations in County Mayo fitted with these “Green Man” units including stations where this system no longer works due to no availability of spares.
