Question

331. Deputy Seán Crowe asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if there are ongoing negotiations to house refugees with the owners of a property (details supplied) in County Kildare. [42767/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Deputy will be aware that the Government has established an Inter-Departmental and Inter-Agency Task Force to coordinate Ireland's response to the migrant crisis.
My Department has received offers of accommodation and services from commercial suppliers. These offers are being assessed at the moment taking into account a range of factors. I wish to inform the Deputy that for reasons of commercial confidentiality it would not be appropriate to make any further comment at this time.
