191. Mr. Wall asked the Minister for Education and Science when a person (details supplied) in County Kildare will receive a radio transmitter and receiver to assist with her class studies as promised in his reply to Parliamentary Question No. 496 of 2 December 1997. [25070/98]
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin) Micheál Martin
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): I am aware of the case to which the Deputy refers.
I understand that the original proposal to allocate a radio transmitter to the child in question did not proceed because the visiting teacher dealing with the child was anxious to conduct a further review of the child's educational progress.
However, I am informed that the question of allocating this equipment is now under active consideration and I have asked that the matter be dealt with as speedily as possible. I regret the delay which has been experienced in this matter.
