Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice and Equality)

I refer the Deputy to my reply to Parliamentary Question No. 514 of Thursday, 19 June 2012. The position is unchanged since then. All recent representations submitted by the persons concerned will be considered before a final decision is made. Once a decision has been made, this decision and the consequences of the decision will be conveyed in writing to the persons concerned.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up to date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from the INIS is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
