Parliamentary Questions – 6 April 2016

Below are questions asked by TDs in Dáil Éireann, relating to Caranua and other areas relevant to survivors

Amounts paid by Caranua

Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Education and Skills the amounts paid under the Caranua scheme; and the range of awards in terms of the amounts paid to single persons. 

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Jan O’Sullivan): Caranua, the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Board, is an independent statutory body established pursuant to the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Act 2012 to oversee the use of the cash contributions of up to €110 million, pledged by the religious congregations, to support the needs of survivors of institutional child abuse.

As Caranua has statutory responsibility, I have asked my officials to forward your query to Caranua for a direct reply to you.
