I can advise the Deputy that there are currently 38 accommodation centres in the State. The occupancy, as of 15 September, is set out in the following table along with the breakdown of the number of dependent children, requested by the Deputy.

There are also 1,363 people currently in emergency accommodation in hotels and guest houses located throughout the State. My Department does not disclose the specific location of emergency accommodation centres in order to protect the identity of international protection applicants.
