I propose to take Questions Nos. 25, 74 and 140 together.
The EU treaties afford freedom of movement within the Union to citizens of member states mainly for economic purposes to do with the internal market in labour, services and goods. This is not an absolute right but subject to public policy, public health and public security considerations. As and from 1 May 2004, persons from the ten accession states with extant deportation orders may apply to the Minister to have those orders revoked. Each application will be considered individually in the context of the treaty rights and the reasons why the orders were made in the first instance. In addition, as and from 1 May 2004 persons from the ten accession states, who have a legal basis for residency in Ireland under the EU treaties, should have no need to pursue individual residency applications outside the treaties.
