Review of Caranua

Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Education and Skills his views on the long promised review of the Caranua scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. 

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Richard Bruton): Eligibility for assistance from Caranua is confined to those who received awards from the Redress Board or equivalent Court awards or settlements. A commitment was given during the passage of the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Act 2012 to review the operation of the Fund two years after its establishment in the event of applications not resulting in a significant expenditure of the Fund. The terms of reference for the review will be drafted in the near future.
