Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn):   The Residential Institutions Statutory Fund, which uses the service name Caranua, is an independent statutory body under the aegis of my Department. I understand from enquiries made by my officials that Caranua will begin to issue Part 2 of the Application Form to those applicants who have been verified as eligible, in March. Caranua has received over 1,500 applications since it opened for business on 6th of January 2014. Applications are being processed in the order that they were received.
