111. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the additional information required in respect of a person (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [45952/19]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I must inform the Deputy that there is no record of an immigration application to my Department from the individual referred to and therefore I cannot comment further in the matter.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service 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 Immigration Service is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
