I will finish it in 30 seconds if I can, a Cheann Comhairle. We have already received the first family of ten and a further 31 Syrians have been security cleared whose arrival in Ireland from Greece is imminent. An additional pledge of 40 people was made to Greece on 22 April and these persons are expected to arrive in Ireland towards the end of July. After that, regular intakes of 40 persons every eight weeks are planned. The Minister of State, Deputy Stanton will be dealing with that in some further detail.

I will send Deputy Adams a note in respect of Palestine. The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Deputy Charles Flanagan, is out there this week.
