Written Answers. - Speech Therapy Services.

352. Mr. G. Mitchell asked the Minister for Health and Children if speech therapy will be [648] provided for a person (details supplied) in Dublin 22 in view of the circumstances. [9888/99]

Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Cowen): As the Deputy will be aware, the provision of speech and language therapy services in the eastern region is the responsibility of the Eastern Health Board. As it would not be appropriate to provide the information sought by the Deputy in relation to the individual concerned by way of a parliamentary question, I have asked the health board to examine this matter and to respond directly to the Deputy.
