Dáil Éireann Debate
517. Deputy Michael McGrath asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if he will provide details, for each of the years 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, of the number of different instances in which counterfeit euro notes have been seized by or have come into the possession of the Garda Síochána; and the total notional value of euros involved. [3705/12]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): I am informed by the Garda authorities that the table shows the number of incidents of counterfeiting notes and coins recorded in the years 2008 to 2011, inclusive. The information requested relating to the notional value in euros is not readily available and would necessitate the expenditure of a disproportionate amount of Garda time and resources to collate.
