Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Visa Applications (21 Oct 2021)

James Browne: I thank Deputy Burke for raising this very important question. I share his concerns for the Afghan people and the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan. Ireland has acted swiftly and compassionately to demonstrate our support and solidarity with the Afghan people. My Department is working closely with colleagues in the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Children,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Visa Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Colm Burke: Can the Minister of State outline how long it is taking to process applications from the time they come into the Department? In addition, I have written to the Minister about people who are part of the judicial process in Afghanistan and who are very vulnerable because of certain decisions they made when the democratically elected Government was in place. Can priority be given to that group...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Visa Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Paul Donnelly: I also thank Deputy Burke for raising this question. It is extremely important. I have been in contact with both Departments about a constituent of mine who has family in Afghanistan. Members of the family previously worked for the Afghan Government, one in a particularly high-profile position. That person is now going from safe house to safe house and is being protected by his family....

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Visa Applications (21 Oct 2021)

James Browne: I reiterate that what Ireland is doing about the Afghan situation is unique. Between our Department - the Minister, Deputy Humphreys, and me - and the Ministers, Deputies O'Gorman and Coveney, significant steps have been taken to help the Afghan people inasmuch as we can as one nation. We are encouraging other nations across the European Union and the European Union itself to do similar. I...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Visa Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Colm Burke: Finally, is the Minister of State satisfied that, once the applications are processed, we have adequate support measures in place for the people coming here? He might not be able to give me an answer here and now, but I would like to get details of the process and the level of supports in place.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Visa Applications (21 Oct 2021)

James Browne: That is absolutely correct. We need to ensure that for anybody coming here the supports are put in place. That is why we have worked with the Minister, Deputy O'Gorman, in that respect. As in many cases, the supports that need to be put in place need to be worked on with the Minister, Deputy O'Gorman, to ensure they are put in place. They would include, for example, school and mental...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

An Garda Síochána

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Joe Flaherty: 83. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of gardaí assigned to stations in County Longford; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [51553/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Joe Flaherty: The Minister will be aware that Garda numbers have fallen for the past five consecutive months and are now at their lowest since January 2020. This is a cause of concern and annoyance within the force but also across rural communities. Will the Minister of State give some figures on the number of personnel in each Garda station in County Longford?

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Murphy: When was the Minister's colleague, Deputy McEntee, first informed that there would be an obligation to inform her under section 41 of the Garda Síochána Act 2005? Did the Minister or, indeed, the acting Minister for Justice or the Garda Commissioner receive any protected disclosures in regard to the cancellation of these calls? If there were protected disclosures, what happened to...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: I thank the Deputy. The Policing Authority was asked by the Minister, Deputy McEntee, to oversee the review being carried out by An Garda Síochána. There have been a number of engagements between the authority and An Garda Síochána since March this year. Regarding the exact date that the Minister was made aware of this, I do not have the information to hand but I will...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Murphy: I asked the Minister about protected disclosures. She might come back to me on that very specifically. It appears to me that there is certainly an issue with the credibility of the Garda National Protective Services Bureau. Would the Minister accept that is the case? Not only were large numbers of 999 calls cancelled, in areas where people were very definitely at risk, that continued even...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: Regarding the protected disclosure, the Deputy will appreciate that there is a duty of confidentiality regarding protected disclosures as set out in the Protected Disclosures Act 2014. It would not be appropriate for me to comment on a protected disclosure.

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Murphy: Have there been any? How many have there been? How have they been dealt with?

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: There have been. I will get my officials to provide the Deputy with that information. The Commissioner is taking this very seriously. The management of An Garda Síochána is a matter for the Commissioner. The Commissioner is due to appear before the authority next week, as the Deputy will know. I expect that this issue will be raised at that meeting. This is oversight in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

An Garda Síochána

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Dara Calleary: 81. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality her views on and response to criticism by Garda superintendents of the proposed policing Bill; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [51417/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Dara Calleary: I am concerned that the proposed policing Bill will walk us into a crisis. I have observed the various commentary on it. There were pre-legislative scrutiny hearings. What work has been done in the Department to address the very serious concerns that were expressed, even outside of the pre-legislative scrutiny process? A far greater response is required.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: I thank Deputy Calleary for raising this matter. It is important to acknowledge that significant and necessary reforms have taken place in An Garda Síochána over the past few years, and Garda superintendents have played their part in these reforms. I am conscious that the publication earlier this year of the general scheme of the policing, security and community safety Bill...
