Caranua is an independent statutory body and I have no input into their administrative decisions on how payments are made. The organisation publishes regular monthly updates on its website (www.caranua.ie) which contain information on the number of applications received, the current status of applications, the expenditure incurred, feedback and complaints, etc. If the information sought by the Deputy is not published on the website, there is a facility for direct contact with Caranua through the dedicated e-mail for members of the Oireachtas.
