Deputy Willie Penrose Deputy Willie Penrose
Deputy Willie Penrose asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when an application for a certificate of naturalisation by a person (details supplied) in County Westmeath will be dealt with and a decision given thereon; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20492/08]
Deputy Dermot Ahern Deputy Dermot Ahern
Deputy Dermot Ahern: An application for a certificate of naturalisation from the person referred to in the Deputy’s Question was received in the Citizenship Section of my Department in May 2007. Officials in that Section are currently processing applications received in late 2005 and have approximately 10,700 applications on hand to be dealt with before that of the person concerned. These are generally dealt with in chronological order as this is deemed to be the fairest to all applicants.
