 292.  Deputy John O’Mahony Information on John O'Mahony Zoom on John O'Mahony  asked the Minister for Social Protection Information on Joan Burton Zoom on Joan Burton  further to Parliamentary Question Number 544 on Wednesday 18 April 2012, when a decision will issue on this application in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Mayo; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [23839/12]

Minister for Social Protection (Deputy Joan Burton): Information on Joan Burton Zoom on Joan Burton As detailed in my response to Parliamentary Question number 544 (which was answered on 18 April 2012) a claim under the insolvency payments scheme was submitted manually on behalf of the person concerned on 29 November 2011 in respect of arrears of wages, holiday pay and minimum notice. The Department is currently processing manually submitted claims received in July 2011.

Notwithstanding this, the Liquidator resubmitted an on line claim on behalf of the person concerned in April 2012. The Department is currently processing on line claims submitted in February 2012. Every effort is being made to process claims as quickly as possible but, unfortunately, it is likely to be a number of months before the claim in question is finalised.
