Written Answers. - Pension Provisions.

202. Mrs. B. Moynihan-Cronin asked the Minister for Health and Children the reason the Southern Health Board has not forwarded the relevant information of a deceased person (details supplied) in County Kerry to the Department of Social, Community and Family Affairs to enable it to issue a survivor's pension to the widow who applied for this in December 1998; and the reason for the delay. [11353/99]


Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Cowen): Since this question relates to a former employee of the Southern Health Board, I have asked the chief executive officer of that board to reply directly to the Deputy in relation to the case.
