 204.  Deputy Bernard J. Durkan Information on Bernard Durkan Zoom on Bernard Durkan  asked the Minister for Justice and Equality Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter  the current and likely future residency status in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3190/12]

[374]Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) that the name of the person detailed in the Deputy’s question is not showing an exact match in INIS records. However, a person of similar name with matching reference number has permission to remain in the State on the basis of her marriage to an Irish national until 14 April 2012. This permission may be renewed by the person attending with her Irish spouse at her local registration office shortly prior to the expiry date of her current immigration permission.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up-to-date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
