Written answers (Question to Children)

My Department is focused on providing short term accommodation to people fleeing the conflict in Ukraine. Over 23,000 people have sought short-term temporary accommodation from my Department to date.

As contract negotiations are still ongoing with the hotel in question, I am not in a position to provide the information requested. The Deputy should also note that the Department is not in a position to provide contractual values of individual providers in view of the commercially sensitive nature of the data.
