122. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the current residency status in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kerry; if all the documentation requested by the relevant section in her Department has been furnished in respect of the person and the person's family; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [22869/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): If the person whose details were supplied has made an application for asylum or subsidiary protection, the Deputy will be aware that it is not the practice to comment on such applications until such time as they have fully completed the protection process.
Applicants or their legal representatives are advised to contact the relevant office of my Department dealing with any such applications in relation to any queries concerning the application.
Protection applicants are issued with a temporary residence permission pending a final decision on their application.
