Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned was written to on 15th April 2019 and advised that he was required to present certain documents in order for his identity to be authenticated and for a PPS Number to be allocated.

To date, he has not yet provided the documentation required. Once this documentation has been supplied to my Department, this matter will be progressed in line with the Department's policies and procedures around identity authentication.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
