A copy of the separation policy has been forwarded to the Deputy directly. The separation policy and the other policies for children detention schools are available on the website of the Irish Youth Justice Service and can be accessed at the following web address: www.iyjs.ie/en/IYJS/Pages/WP12000013.

The Oberstown Children Detention Campus is responsible for collating information on the use of single separation; I have therefore referred the Deputy's request for information in that regard to the Director of Oberstown for direct reply to the Deputy.
