I thank the Deputy for her question. She can rest assured that there will be an awareness of that within the Intreo offices, certainly of the 350 people who lost their jobs in the Xtra-vision stores. The priority of the Department is to ensure that the workers receive their statutory redundancy and other wage related payments due at the time of liquidation. I give the Deputy an undertaking that we will make sure that the staff in the local Intreo offices across the city are aware of Xtra-vision's situation and we will work as best we can in that regard. I cannot give the Deputy an exact timeframe for processing the applications. Every application can differ slightly in terms of the speed with which the information is provided by the client but she can rest assured we will do everything to speed up the process to ensure they get what are their statutory rights.
