267. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the level of staffing granted to Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, to facilitate a speedy, robust and transparent system for handling sensitive information given the age profile of those persons seeking information regarding adoptions from mother and baby homes; the waiting time for responses in the regional adoption service, Child and Family Agency in St Conal's Campus, Letterkenny, County Donegal; if he is aware that many of those persons requesting information are elderly and cannot afford the long waiting times for responses, as currently being experienced; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this is a service matter for which Tusla, the Child and Family Agency has responsibility, I have asked Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy.
