362. Deputy Tom Fleming asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she will re-examine an application in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Kerry; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [25978/15]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I have been informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) that an application was received for permission to remain in the State from the person mentioned on 26 February 2015. This application is currently being considered and will be dealt with in a timely manner. Accordingly, a re-examination of the application does not arise.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS 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 Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from INIS is, the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
