I am informed by the Garda Authorities that no vetting applications have been received in respect of the first of the persons to whom the Deputy refers. In the circumstances, I can only suggest that the person contacts the registered organisation involved.

I am also informed that two vetting applications in respect of the second person to whom the Deputy refers have been received by the Garda Central Vetting Unit (GCVU). The applications are being processed at present and a response will issue as soon as possible.

I am further informed that two vetting applications were received by the GCVU on behalf of the third person to whom the Deputy refers. One of the applications was processed and has been returned to the registered organisation. However, the other application was incomplete and it has been returned to the registered organisation for completion. Once a completed application is received by the Vetting Unit it will be processed accordingly.
