Question 359: To ask the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform further to Parliamentary Question No. 170 of 17 June 2010, the precise details appertaining to this case; the reason transfer to locations mentioned is not possible having particular regard to the specific circumstances; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [28056/10]
Question 362: To ask the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if he will review the request for accommodation transfer to Mosney accommodation centre, Julianstown, County Meath in the case of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 22; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [28059/10]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 359 and 362 together.
Out of respect for the family's privacy rights I am constrained from going into detail about their personal circumstances. However, I can confirm that the decision by the Reception and Integration Agency (RIA) on the residential location of the persons referred to in the details supplied has been subject to review and that the decision stands. The provision of alternative accommodation for this family in Dublin ensures that they are provided with suitable accommodation and at an appropriate location to meet their needs.
