  197.  Mr. Durkan  Information on Bernard Durkan  Zoom on Bernard Durkan   asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform  Information on Michael McDowell  Zoom on Michael McDowell   if he will reconsider his decision to refuse naturalisation in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; [220]and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12688/05]

Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. McDowell): Information on Michael McDowell  Zoom on Michael McDowell  I refer the Deputy to my reply to his Question No. 130 of 14 April 2005. In that reply I outlined the circumstances of the case of the person in question by reference to the general policy adopted by me in exercising my discretion. The application of the general policy in this case implies no opinion derogatory of the applicant’s motivation, nor does it constitute a bar on a future application for naturalisation from him which comes within the ambit of that general policy.
