Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

International Protection

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Seán Canney: 125. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if she will provide an update on the Afghan admission programme; the number of applications that have been received; the timeline for dealing with such applications; if her attention has been drawn to the urgency of many of the cases; if applications are being streamlined according to urgency; and if she will make a statement...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Seán Canney: I seek an update on the Afghan admission programme, the number of applications that have been received, the timeline for dealing with such applications and whether the Minister's attention has been drawn to the fact that many of these cases are urgent. It is important that we remember what happened in Afghanistan and that we do everything we can to facilitate people who want to come to this...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Helen McEntee: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. I too share his concerns for the Afghan people and the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. I think we all share those concerns. In response, Ireland has acted swiftly and compassionately to demonstrate our support. While we can all be concerned, we need to show actual support and solidarity with the Afghan people. My Department...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Seán Canney: I commend the Minister and her Department on setting up the scheme. It is not only humanitarian but also reflects our own history and the fact that when we were in trouble we found it hard to go to other countries. It is important we take that on board. I understand that the scheme is unique and has to be done properly in order that, when it is put in place, it actually works and does not...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Helen McEntee: The Deputy is right that, as a nation, we have travelled to every corner of the world and understand how important it is to be welcomed when we go to another country. We are trying to make sure that this process is as easy and as straightforward as possible, that those who need it the most can apply and that their family members can apply on their behalf. We do not want families to be split...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Seán Canney: I thank the Minister for her response. I welcome the fact that she hopes to have the scheme in place before the Dáil recess. It is also important we understand there are Afghan people living in this country - especially, as the Minister said, women and children - who have family members in the homeland and who are seriously concerned and stressed out about what will happen to them. I...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: International Protection (25 Nov 2021)

Helen McEntee: I thank the Deputy for his comments. I hope we will see something similar replicated across other member states. Other countries are doing their bit as well and trying to ensure that Afghan nationals, in particular those at risk, are protected. The scheme will essentially provide lawful residence on a temporary basis for up to two years, but it is important to add that it may be possible...

Departmental Reports

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (25 Nov 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: 126. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the status of the implementation of recommendations contained in a report (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [57834/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (25 Nov 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I hope Members were as lucky as me in getting tickets to Garth Brooks this morning. To move on to something far more serious, my question is about the implementation of the recommendations of the report referred to in the question. We had the scoping exercise, the Guerin report, the implementation report and the difficulties in forming the implementation board. We all know the damage,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (25 Nov 2021)

Helen McEntee: I thought the Deputy was going to tell me he had convinced Garth Brooks to come to Drogheda, but I do not think that is case.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (25 Nov 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Dundalk, even.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (25 Nov 2021)

Joe Flaherty: I thank the Minister of State for the response. We all agree community policing is very much at the front line and has proven itself to be extremely effective over the past decade in tackling antisocial and street crime. Through a parliamentary question earlier this year, I asked for the number of gardaí in County Longford. The response was that there had been 139 gardaí in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (25 Nov 2021)

James Browne: I thank the Deputy for consistently raising the importance of Garda deployment in his area and for supporting the organisation there. The distribution of members of the Garda throughout the country is a matter for the Garda Commissioner, and the designation of members of the Garda within the divisions is a matter for the chief superintendent. We have seen a significant increase in funding...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (25 Nov 2021)

Joe Flaherty: I thank the Minister of State. It is important that we place on record our gratitude to An Garda Síochána, particularly throughout the Covid period. It has been a very difficult period for it. Many officers have been affected by Covid, and their families have been affected as a consequence. With regard to the 139 gardaí assigned to County Longford as of 30 September,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (25 Nov 2021)

James Browne: The distribution of gardaí is a matter for Garda senior management. I hope the 800 additional members of the Garda funded through this year’s budget will mean additional resources right across the country. In fact, I have no doubt about this. There will be an estimated 14,600 fully attested members of An Garda Síochána and 600 in training, putting us on course to meet...

Closed-Circuit Television Systems

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Closed-Circuit Television Systems (25 Nov 2021)

Joe Flaherty: 124. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the plans in place for the expansion of Garda CCTV; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [57984/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Closed-Circuit Television Systems (25 Nov 2021)

Joe Flaherty: This follows on from a similar theme, that of community policing. What plans has the Minister of State in place for the expansion of Garda CCTV? Could he make a statement on the matter if possible?
