394. Mr. Perry asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs the avenues which are available to a person to obtain his or her birth certificate (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6454/06]
Mr. D. Ahern Mr. D. Ahern
Mr. D. Ahern: To obtain the relevant birth certificate, the person in question should make contact with the certificate services section, General Register Office, PO Box 2, Southport, PR8 2JD, England, telephone 0044 845 603 7788. In circumstances where a birth was not registered, there is a facility for late registration with the General Register Office at the address provided.
If, however, the General Register Office is unable to issue a birth certificate under this late registration process, the Passport Office may be able to accept alternative proof of Irish citizenship from the person in question. Should this option be required, the Deputy might ask the person in question to make contact with the passport officer, telephone no. 01 6733046, which would be happy to advise him on the best way forward.
