Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform
Question 241: To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the progress made regarding the application for residency of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 7; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [31247/06]
The person in question applied for permission to remain in the State on the basis of being a parent of an Irish citizen child, born before 1 January 2005, in accordance with the revised arrangements announced by me on 15 January 2005, commonly referred to as the IBC/05 scheme.
The person in question did not satisfy the criteria under the revised arrangements and was notified of this decision on 12 October 2005. The immigration status of the person concerned is currently being reviewed. In the event that the person in question does not have permission to remain following this review, he will then have an opportunity to make further representations as to his continued presence in the State.
