Below are questions asked by TDs in Dáil Éireann, relating to Caranua


Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Minister for Education and Skills the number of consultants contracted to undertake work for Caranua; the names and details of these consultants; if she appointed any consultants to Caranua and their details; the value of their contracts; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [38105/14]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Jan O’Sullivan): Pursuant to section 7(7) of the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Act, 2012 Caranua may, with my approval, enter into contracts or engage consultants or advisers.

While I have not appointed any consultants to Caranua, my Department has been liaising with Caranua in relation to its contractual arrangements and its engagement of consultants and is currently considering the approval of a number of consultancies and contracts pursuant to section 7(7). I understand that it is hoped to finalise the matter shortly. I will arrange to have the relevant details forwarded to the Deputy once finalised.

Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Minister for Education and Skills the advocacy or representative groups of survivors of residential institutional abuse that have requested to meet her since she took office; the groups she has met to date; if she will meet any others; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [38106/14]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Jan O’Sullivan): Since my appointment as Minister I have received meeting requests from representatives of Right to Peace and the Irish Women Survivor’s Support Network in the UK. While neither meeting has as yet taken place, I understand that one request is not being pursued at present while arrangements are being made for the other meeting.
