Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 258 and 288 together.

Officials in my Department have confirmed with Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) that the student referred to by the Deputy was issued an award letter on the 12th June 2013. I also understand that SUSI has contacted the applicant with regards to uploading his bank details on line in order for payments to commence.
