84. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if a letter dated 21 August 2014 which issued from INIS may be resent to a person (details supplied) in County Galway as that person never received the letter; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [15889/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that they are carrying out further enquiries in relation to the person referred to by the Deputy and will be in touch with him directly in the coming days.
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 where staff are not under the same pressure of time constraints when making their replies.
