Mr. Moore: Information on Seán Moore Zoom on Seán Moore asked the Minister for Justice if he is aware of the recent arrival in Dublin of a number of British police officers who are said to be anxious to interview a British national in connection with the murder of three policemen in London recently; and why this task was not carried out by the appropriate branch of the Garda Síochána.

Mr. B. Lenihan: Information on Patrick J. Lenihan Zoom on Patrick J. Lenihan Members of the police forces of neighbouring countries, including Britain, visit this country and members of the Garda, in turn, visit neighbouring countries, including Britain, from time to time when serious crimes are being investigated. In such cases the visitors are afforded every [1393] proper assistance by the local Force in the interests of close co-operation in the detection and prevention of crime. This procedure benefits all the countries concerned, and I see nothing whatsoever wrong with the practice.
