The ormer chairperson of the Working Group on the Protection Process for asylum seekers, retired Judge Bryan McMahon, expressed disappointment at the slow rate of change in direct provision. He looked at the failure to  resource key recommendations over the past 10 months.

Speaking at the launch of ‘The Search for Refuge’, the May 2016 issue of Working Notes (the Journal of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice), retired Judge McMahon said:

“Ten months on, implementation of key recommendations has been slow and inadequately resourced. The progress in resolving the situation of those more than five years in the system is most welcome yet considerable work remains to be done to ensure all who could benefit will. Most worryingly delays are again growing significantly at the earlier stages in the protection process.”
