  174. Mr. Perry asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when a decision will be made on an application for family reunification for a person (details supplied) in County Sligo; if the necessary documentation will be issued directly to them; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9606/06]

  Mr. McDowell: There is no provision for the granting of family reunification to adult family members of naturalised Irish citizens. The person [742] concerned has permission to remain in the State until 9 January 2007 on a self-sufficiency basis. It is a condition of this permission to remain that an individual cannot have access to State funds, services or benefits.
