132. Miss Harney asked the Minister for Health if he will give a list of the  programmes which are in place to rehabilitate the physically handicapped.
Minister for Health (Mr. B. Desmond) Barry Desmond
Minister for Health (Mr. B. Desmond): The Deputy will appreciate that because of the very wide range of services available for the rehabilitation of physically handicapped people which cover a number of Government Departments and agencies it would not be possible to detail these services in this reply.
In so far as my Department is concerned the rehabilitation services include medical rehabilitation, vocational assessment, guidance and placement services, income maintenance and training allowances, domiciliary care, the provision of aids and appliances, occupational therapy and day care services. The services for the disabled are however outlined in considerable detail in the Government's Green Paper on Services for Disabled People, Towards a Full Life. I am arranging to send the Deputy a copy of the paper under separate cover.
