  472.  Mr. Hayes  Information on Tom Hayes  Zoom on Tom Hayes   asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform  Information on Michael McDowell  Zoom on Michael McDowell   the crime statistics for the towns of Cashel, Cahir, Clonmel, Fethard, Carrick-on-Suir and Tipperary town for each of 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 (details supplied). [35169/05]

Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. McDowell): Information on Michael McDowell  Zoom on Michael McDowell  I am informed by the Garda authorities that the attached tables provide the total offences for the ten headline offences groups recorded and detected in the Garda districts of Cahir, Clonmel and Tipperary town for years 2000 to 2004. Cahir Garda district includes Cashel, and Clonmel Garda district includes Fethard and Carrick-on-Suir.

The figures provided for 2004 are provisional-operational and liable to change. In interpreting these figures, account has also to be taken of the introduction of the new PULSE computer system by the Garda Síochána in 1999, which led to more complete and comprehensive recording of crimes reported than was previously the case. These new groups are more comprehensive and not comparable to the four crime groups previously used. For this reason the figures for 1997 are not comparable to statistics provided for the years 2000 onwards.
