Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned does not satisfy the Habitual Residence Condition for receiving jobseeker's allowance as she does not yet have refugee status in the State. Consequently she does not have a work permit and is therefore unavailable for employment.

Question No. 272 withdrawn.
