Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Mentally Handicapped Children.
Dr. O'Connell Dr. O'Connell
47. Dr. O'Connell asked the Minister for Health if he is aware that parents visiting their mentally handicapped children in institutions are encountering considerable delays in obtaining their travel allowance; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Mr. Haughey Mr. Haughey
Mr. Haughey: I am not so aware. Whilst a delay might occur in an individual case I am satisfied, from inquiries that I have made, that the scheme is operated sympathetically and efficiently by the health boards. If the Deputy would like to forward details to me of any case where he feels an undue delay has occurred I shall be pleased to take the matter up with the appropriate health board.
