Joan Burton

Question:

292 Ms Burton asked the Minister for Social and Family Affairs the reason for the delay by the Director of the GRO Modernisation Project in responding to representations made by the Adopted People's Association on 10 May 2002. [15078/02]

A full briefing on the GRO Modernisation Project was provided to the association on 9 May 2002. The issues raised at the briefing and in the association's subsequent letter are currently being investigated. A number of those issues are not straightforward and require to be discussed with other appropriate persons/bodies and this has contributed to the delay in responding to them. A representative of the association was contacted on 10 June 2002 and informed of the position. As soon as the various issues have been fully examined a reply will be sent to the association.
