  • Question on direct provision numbers – Thomas Pringle TD
    from the later date of 19 February 2013 there are now 4760 persons in direct provision accommodation centres under contract to the Reception and Integration Agency RIA of my Department As before the following profile shows the duration of stay of residents currently in direct provision accommodation centres but it now shows a breakdown of up to 7 years or more a male and female resident breakdown and the percentages involved Female Male Total Months No No No 0 3 87 3 8 147 5 9 234 4 9 3 6 89 3 9 117 4 7 206 4 3 6 9 89 3 9 114 4 6 203 4 3 9 12 108 4 7 138 5 6 246 5 2 12 18 142 6 2 160 6 5 302 6 3 18 24 107 4 7 121 4 9 228 4 8 24 36 242 10 6 255 10 3 497 10 4 36 48 253 11 1 325 13 1 578 12 1 48 60 382 16 7 378 15 3 760 16 0 60 72 349 15 3 313 12 6 662 13 9 72 84 216 9 5 203 8 2 419 8 8 84 219 9 6 206 8 3 425 8 9 Total 2283 100 0 2477 100 0 4760 100 0 This profile is based on residents most recent entry to the direct provision system It does not include past time spent by residents who left the system for a period and subsequently sought and were granted re access to the system It is important to note that RIA itself has no function in determining whether someone should stay or not in its accommodation Its function is to provide accommodation and related services to those who have sought international protection and who otherwise have no means of supporting themselves In essence RIA accommodates all those who make a claim for international protection and who seek accommodation until such time as they i leave voluntarily ii are removed either by way of deportation or Dublin II transfer iii are granted refugee status or subsidiary protection or iv are granted leave to remain either through the process set out in the Immigration Act 1999 or by way of special scheme such as the 2005 IBC scheme As I previously outlined I acknowledge that the length of time spent in direct provision is an issue to be addressed and I have taken a number of steps to speed up the processing of applications including redeployment of resources establishment of a legal panel to assist INIS in processing a cohort of repatriation cases Further I plan to republish the Immigration Residence and Protection Bill 2010 to create a single procedure for the processing of applications These steps will help reduce the time a person spends in direct provision while they await a final decision on their case As I also explained I recently approved an initiative to put in place a panel with legal expertise who

  • Question on number of persons living in direct provision – Thomas Pringle TD
    496 36 2 833 Total 4 735 This profile is based on residents most recent entry to the direct provision system It does not include past time spent by residents who left the system for a period and subsequently sought and were granted re access to the system I acknowledge that the length of time spent in the direct provision system is an issue to be addressed On the matter of application processing times and consequent length of time spent in the direct provision system some cases can take significantly longer to complete owing to for example delays arising from medical issues or because of judicial review proceedings All asylum applications and appeals are processed in accordance with the Refugee Act 1996 and high quality and fair decision making in all cases continues to be a key priority at all stages of the asylum process For the sake of completeness it is necessary to point out that persons who are refused a declaration under section 17 of the Refugee Act 1996 as amended enter what is commonly referred to as the leave to remain process which generally has two elements to it an application for subsidiary protection and further consideration to be given under section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 as amended This is separate from the asylum or refugee status determination process The processing of cases at this point is also complex and extremely resource intensive and there are no quick or easy decisions to make Given the life changing consequences for the persons involved these are decisions which must be taken with the most scrupulous care and attention I have taken steps to speed up the processing of applications primarily by redeploying staff from the refugee determination bodies The Immigration Residence and Protection Bill 2010 which I intend to republish provides for the introduction of a single procedure to determine applications for protection and other reasons to remain in the State This should substantially simplify and streamline the existing arrangements This reorganisation of the protection application processing framework will remove the current multi layered processes and provide applicants with a final decision on their applications in a more straightforward and timely fashion Further I recently approved an initiative to put in place a panel with legal expertise who will assist INIS in processing a cohort of repatriation cases thus speeding up the overall process and reducing the time spent by persons in the direct provision system I would expect to see significant dividends in terms of cases finalised from this initiative in the coming months As to the system of direct provision itself I have explained in detail in response to previous Dáil Questions the reasons why it was introduced in 1999 in response to a situation where the structures then in place were entirely unsuited to the situation then pertaining and was necessary to prevent widespread homelessness among asylum seekers The system remains remains a necessary feature of the State s asylum and immigration system and
