I propose to take Questions Nos. 268 and 270 together.

I can confirm that my Department does not have a service level agreement with nor does it provide funding directly to the Venezuelan Community in Ireland.

I have outlined in my response to question 269 the grant funding provided by my Department to the New Communities Partnership for different migrant integration programmes, including the purposes to which that grant funding goes.
