€91.5m spent on asylum accommodation

THE total cost of providing accommodation for asylum seekers in the State in 2008 was € 91.5 million.

East Meath TD Thomas Byrne was given the figures in the Dáil after he was asked to raise this issue by a number of constituents.

The FF deputy says he does think the overall total is a lot of money, but a new bill will streamline the process and bring down the costs.
