[19672/12]

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter I can inform the Deputy that the State Pathologist, Deputy Pathologists and Assistant State Pathologist do not use State vehicles when attending crime scenes.

In June 2010 my Department undertook a tender process to provide a driver and vehicle service to assist the Office of the State Pathologist in providing an on-call service outside of the Dublin area. The contract is for a period of 24 months from 26 October 2010. The Deputy may wish to note that the staff sometimes use their own cars.
