  199.  Deputy Leo Varadkar  Information on Leo Varadkar  Zoom on Leo Varadkar   asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform  Information on Brian Joseph Lenihan  Zoom on Brian Joseph Lenihan   the way the Immigration and Residency Bill will affect Irish citizens with non-EEA spouses with regard to notification or permission to marry, recognition of foreign marriages and the right of non-EEA spouses to enter, live, work, study or carry out business in this State; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9879/08]

Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Deputy Brian Lenihan): Information on Brian Joseph Lenihan  Zoom on Brian Joseph Lenihan  To give a detailed response to the Question would anticipate the will of the Oireachtas on the Bill. I do not propose to do so by way of response to Parliamentary Questions. I have already indicated that I am open to further suggestions, in the context of debate at Committee Stage on the Bill, as to how it should address the immigration-related aspects of marriage.
