Dáil Éireann Debate
119. Mr. Kenneally asked the Minister for the Marine the number of prosecutions initiated over the last five years by each of the regional fishery boards; the number of such prosecutions withdrawn prior to going to court; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [7095/95]
The detection of offences and the prosecution of suspected offenders is a matter solely for the fisheries board within whose region the alleged offence is committed. In so far as prosecutions withdrawn prior to going to court are concerned I understand that in all cases these decisions were taken by the regional fisheries boards concerned on foot of legal advice.
