Minister for Justice (Mrs. Geoghegan-Quinn): The information sought in so far as it is readily available is set out in the tabular statement below:
Notes: (1) The number of applications is not necessarily equivalent to the number of persons, i.e. one application may also provide for additional family members. The nationality of applicants is not recorded.
(2) The number of certificates issued or refused in any year does not necessarily relate to the applications made in that year.
(3) The number of applications refused was recorded from 1 April 1992 only.
