Mr. Durkan Mr. Durkan
Mr. Durkan asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if he will reconsider under any other criterion an application for naturalisation in the case of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 24; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [40864/06]
Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: The person in question applied for permission to remain in the State on the basis of being a parent of an Irish citizen child, born before 1 January 2005, in accordance with the revised arrangements announced by me on 15 January, commonly referred to as the IBC/05 scheme.
The person in question did not satisfy the criteria under the revised arrangements and was notified of this decision on 16 December 2005. There is no separate procedure for considering leave to remain in the State based on being the parent of an Irish citizen child. The fact that a non-EU national is the parent of an Irish citizen child can only be considered in the context of the deportation process.
