Parliamentary Question 13th November 2018

Deputy Catherine Connolly asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Joe McHugh Zoom on Joe McHugh further to Parliamentary Question No. 320 of 6 November 2018, the measures in place at Caranua to deal with the influx of applications since the announcement of the cessation date pursuant to note 4, Caranua board minutes of 9 August 2018; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh: My understanding is that, despite the wording used in the Board minutes, there has been no major spike in the number of incoming applications to Caranua. However, because Caranua is an independent statutory body, I have no role in relation to its day to day operations. There is an appropriate agreed channel which members of the Oireachtas may use in order to seek direct responses from Caranua to specific queries. In this instance, I have asked that Caranua respond directly to your query.
