I can inform the Deputy that there is ongoing engagement with An Garda Síochána in relation to budgetary matters including the additional costs arising from the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.  The Deputy will be aware that as part of the Government's July Stimulus Package, an additional €11 million in capital funding has been made available for the Garda Vote. 

All aspects of the 2020 budget will continue to be kept under review over the coming  months, including any requirements for further additional funding, and of course there is extensive engagement with the Garda authorities and with the Department of Expenditure and Reform in the context of preparing for the 2021 Estimates.

The Deputy will be aware that under Section 26 (1) (b) of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the management and administration of An Garda Síochána including personnel/human resources matters.  In addition, under Section 43(1) of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 the Garda Commissioner is the Accounting Officer of An Garda Síochána and is responsible for the overtime budget. Therefore, as Minister I have no direct role in these matters.

However, in order to be of assistance, I have made appropriate enquiries and I am informed by the Garda authorities that the amount of overtime paid to members of An Garda Síochána by rank and by county from March to 23rd September 2020 is as outlined in the table below;

Protected Disclosures

Ceist:

692. Deputy Jim O'Callaghan asked the Minister for Justice when the investigation into the protected disclosure by an employee of the Irish Prison Service (details supplied) will be completed and a report provided. [26345/20]

Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

As the Deputy is aware, the Protected Disclosures Act was enacted in 2014 to allow employees to bring alleged wrongdoing to the attention of the appropriate authorities. 

The Act also affords very important protections to persons making protected disclosures. I am sure that the Deputy will appreciate therefore that it would not be appropriate for me to comment on nor confirm the existence of any specific protected disclosure. The protection of those wishing to make a protected disclosure rightly prioritises the confidentiality of the process, which is central to the efficacy of that process.

Residency Permits

Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and as the Deputy will appreciate, a wide range of measures have been required to protect our prison population, in line with public health advice. The Irish Prison Service is continuing to work towards minimising the potential issues with the COVID -19 pandemic within the closed and high risk prison environment.

Additional costs have arisen in relation to PPE equipment, certain expenditure related to absence of family visits, additional video link facilities for remote Court attendance and additional payroll costs to cover for officers in isolation.  

The budget for 2020 is being monitored on an ongoing basis and similarly the budgetary requirements in relation to the impact of the COVID - 19 pandemic into 2021 are also a consideration in the estimates discussions currently underway.  

As announced during the summer, the Governments July Stimulus Package provides for additional capital funding of €8 million for the Prisons Vote and the progress on all capital projects is being kept continually under review.  

Protected Disclosures

Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware, the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 came into operation on 15 July 2014 and my Department has a comprehensive Protected Disclosure Policy in place. The Policy was reviewed during 2019 and a revised Policy is due to be published in 2020. The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 provides protections for workers in both the public and private sectors against penalisation by their employers in circumstances where they have raised concerns about potential wrongdoing. 

With regard to the Deputy’s question about the number of protected disclosures being processed by my Department from employees of the Prison Service, it is important to note that the Irish Prison Service, as an executive function of my Department, has its own Protected Disclosures Policy in place and publishes an annual report separately on disclosures received in line with the requirements of the Act. The Protected Disclosures Policy document of Irish Prison Service is available on the website: www.irishprisons.ie.  People working in the Irish Prison Service may make a protected disclosure to the Irish Prison Service directly, as well as to my Department. 

The table below sets out the number of Protected Disclosures made to my Department in relation to the Irish Prison Service in 2019 and to-date in 2020. For the sake of completeness, I have also sought information regarding the number of protected disclosures made to the Irish Prison Service during the requested timeframe, and this is also provided in the table below.

Under the European Communities (Reception Conditions) Regulations 2018, applicants in the international protection process who have not received a first instance decision within nine months from the date when their protection application was lodged, can make an application for a labour market access permission. 

The permission is granted to eligible applicants for six months and is renewable thereafter until there is a final decision on the person's protection application. The permission gives holders the opportunity to become self-employed or to work in a wide range of employment positions including as a chef. The only employment positions not permitted are as a member in the Irish Defence Forces, An Garda Síochána, or the Civil or Public Service because of the long-term residence or EEA citizenship requirement associated with these positions.

John Lahart

Ceist:

700. Deputy John Lahart asked the Minister for Justice if she has had officials examine the diet in direct provision centres with reports alleging that the quality of the food is not child friendly nor does it meet daily nutritional guideline amounts. [26455/20]

Amharc ar fhreagra

It is a contractual obligation on all service providers of accommodation centres that a 28 day menu be provided and that residents are consulted on that menu. Menus must meet the reasonable dietary and cultural needs of the different ethnic groups accommodated at the centre and the reasonable prescribed dietary needs of any resident.  Menus must include a vegetarian option and all food products provided must have a traceability system that complies with food safety requirements. 

Residents may advise their accommodation centre manager of any dietary requirement that they have and this will be facilitated, where possible. Arrangements can also be made to cater for particular religious needs, for example, Muslim residents who are observing Ramadan.

In 2018, in line with a recommendation made in the McMahon Report, a nutritionist was engaged to carry out an audit of centres. The audit report formed part of my Department's ongoing work to ensure that nutritious food is provided to residents. The report also informed the preparations for the subsequent regional tender process for accommodation, which mandated independent living for all new centres procured through that process.

More than 65% of all residents now have access to independent living and cooking facilities.  The aim is to have all residents in commercial centres benefitting from independent living (cooking facilities and onsite food hall) by next year.

For those accommodation centres which have already moved to the independent living model, residents are provided with ingredients and household items at no cost and cook for themselves and their families.  These centres must provide a wide range of products which are culturally appropriate and meet the dietary needs of residents.

In relation to emergency accommodation, my Department has contracted with providers for bed and full board (three meals per day) on an emergency basis due to insufficient capacity within my Department’s current accommodation portfolio.  My officials are working to ensure that residents in emergency accommodation are there for as short a period as possible before being re-accommodated in dedicated accommodation centres.  My officials work closely with staff and residents in emergency accommodation to address any issues that may arise.  

Complaints by residents may arise from time to time in relation to dietary matters, which may be brought to the attention of the centre manager. If the resident is not satisfied with the outcome, he or she can make a complaint to the International Protection Accommodation Service (IPAS) of my Department, which will be investigated by my officials and action taken as appropriate. If the issue is still not resolved to the satisfaction of the resident, he or she can make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman or to the Ombudsman for Children, as appropriate, for their investigation.

All accommodation centres are also subject to regular unannounced inspections by staff from my Department and an independent inspector (QTS). Part of the inspection process deals directly with the provision of food services. Meals are assessed during inspection for quality, cultural appropriateness and variety of menu options. Any issues identified are notified to the contractor to be addressed immediately.

New National Standards for Accommodation Centres were published in August 2019, which will come into operation in January 2021. The Standards include commitments in relation to the provision of food, including access to a varied diet that respects cultural, religious, dietary, nutritional and medical requirements.

The administration and management of An Garda Síochána is by law a matter for the Garda Commissioner. This includes responsibilities for matters including recruitment and training of members.  These are not matters for which I am responsible as Minister.

As the Deputy will appreciate and in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and associated public health restrictions, public access to the Garda College has been prohibited since 12 March 2020.  At that time, over 300 Garda trainees attested earlier than scheduled and sworn members of Garda College staff were deployed to operational duties in order to enhance Garda capacity to respond to the pandemic.

In terms of current position, I am informed by the Garda Commissioner that arrangements have now been made to permit further intakes of Garda recruits, despite the current situation.

I am informed that approximately 150 new recruits are undergoing training under a revised delivery method, in light of the current circumstances.  The first batch of approximately 75 commenced training on 25 May, and the second batch of 75 recruits commenced training on 22 June. 

I am advised that first intake are due to complete Phase I of their training at the Garda College on Friday 27 November 2020, following which it is anticipated that they will commence work in their new stations on Monday 30 November 2020.  The second intake are due to complete Phase I of their training at the Garda College on Friday 22 January 2021, following which it is anticipated that they will commence work in their new stations on Monday 25 January 2021. 

I understand that training consists of:

- 3 weeks on-line distance learning;

- 1 week residential at the Garda College;

- Weeks 5-16 assisting operational policing in allocated training stations in home divisions;-Weeks 17-32 residential at the Garda College and attestation (all other things being equal).

I am further informed that the Garda College has put in place strict contingencies for the period during which recruits will attend the college and strict social distancing will be enforced for the duration.

Since the introduction of the European Communities (Reception Conditions) Regulations 2018, a total of 218 applications for a labour market access permission were refused from applicants who had already received a first instance recommendation from the International Protection Office within 9 months of the date they applied for international protection.

In addition, a further 435 applications for a labour market access permission were refused as ineligible, as the processing time for their international protection application had not exceeded 8 months without receiving a first instance recommendation. In general, these applications are made well in advance of the 8 month timeframe and it is open to these applicants to reapply once the 8 months has elapsed.

While applicants can apply after 8 months waiting for a first instance recommendation, the permission only becomes valid after 9 months. The criteria for making an application are as follows:

1. The person is an international protection applicant; and  

2. They have been waiting at least 8 months for their first instance recommendation; and  

3. They are cooperating with the international protection process – any delays in receiving a recommendation must not be due to any actions taken by the applicant.

I propose to take Questions Nos. 704 and 705 together.

The Deputy will be aware that the Garda Commissioner is by law responsible for the management of An Garda Síochána, including personnel matters and deployment of resources.  As Minister, I have no responsibility for these matters.  I am assured, however, that Garda management keeps the distribution of resources under continual review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities, to ensure their optimum use.

The resources provided to An Garda Síochána have reached unprecedented levels, with an allocation for 2020 of €1.88 billion. This level of funding is enabling sustained, ongoing recruitment of Garda members and staff and as a result, An Garda Síochána is a growing organisation. There are now almost 14,700 Gardaí nationwide, supported by over 3,000 Garda staff and these numbers are continuing to grow.  Taken together, this increase in the number of Garda members and staff is delivering a significant growth in operational policing hours nationwide.

The K District  referred to by the Deputy is located within the DMR West Division. This District refers to the Garda stations located at  Blanchardstown, Finglas and Cabra.

Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Justice)

Ireland strongly supports the principle of solidarity and recognises that assistance is required for Member States who face a disproportionate number of applicants and where incidences such as that which occurred in the Moria camp in Lesbos can cause additional hardship. 

My colleagues Minister O'Gorman announced on 17 September a commitment to accept four unaccompanied minors from the camp.  In addition to this commitment, I have asked officials to examine the options which might exist to relocate other cohorts of people impacted, and they are currently liaising with colleagues at EU level in relation to the legal mechanisms by which this might be done. I expect to reach a decision in relation to this matter over the coming days.

In a previous gesture of solidarity, Ireland committed to accepting up to 36 unaccompanied minors from Greece.  Eight of these young people arrived in Ireland in June and are now in the care of Tusla.

More broadly, to date, more than 3,350 people have arrived in the State under the first phase of the Irish Refugee Protection Programme. Last December, a second phase was announced giving a commitment to welcome a further 2,900 refugees between this year and 2023 through a combination of resettlement and community sponsorship.
