Tue, January 31, 2017

103. Deputy Mattie McGrath asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of children that have been born to those under the direct provision system since its introduction in 2000; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality (Deputy David Stanton): The information requested by the Deputy is not readily available as it is not collated by either this Department or the Registrar General of Births Deaths and Marriages.
