Written Answers. - Asylum Applications.

381.Mr. Allen asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the number of refugees and asylum seekers resident here on 1 April 2003; the areas in which they are located and the number in each location; in the case of each location, the amount being paid to the owners of the properties per person; and the numbers and locations of asylum seekers on 1 April 2002 and on 1 April 2001 providing the same information for those years. [10935/03]

The Reception and Integration Agency, RIA, is responsible, inter alia, for meeting the accommodation needs of asylum seekers under the system of dispersal and direct provision which was introduced in April 2000. Refugees and persons given leave to remain in the State on the basis of parentage of an Irish born child prior to the recent Supreme Court decision essentially have access on the same basis as Irish citizens to the general housing stock, and as such, the RIA has no information on the individual locations of this cohort of immigrants.

The information sought by the Deputy in respect of asylum seekers accommodated under the system of dispersal and direct provision for the years in question is set out in the following table:

The RIA constantly monitors the rates of payment to the providers of accommodation and, as a consequence of this, most commercial accommodation providers have signed memoranda of agreement with the RIA at a significantly lower rate than prevailed in the market in the past. Current weekly rates for full board fall within the range of €182.00 and €222.60 per person per week.

In relation to the Dublin area the Reception and Integration Agency operates five reception centres for newly arrived asylum seekers which can accommodate up to 700 people at any given time.
