116. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if copies of letters in the case of a person (details supplied) will be provided to the person; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [38254/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that copies of the letters dated 21 December 2017 and 5 January 2018 have been re-issued to the person referred to by the Deputy. Upon receipt of the requested documentation the case will be further processed.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS of my Department by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up to date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
