162. Mr. McGuinness asked the Minister for Finance if he can expedite an application under the Disabled Drivers and Disabled Passengers (Tax Concessions) Regulations 1994 for a person (details supplied) in County Carlow. [14848/00]
Mr. McCreevy Mr. McCreevy
Minister for Finance (Mr. McCreevy): I have been informed by the Revenue Commissioners who have day-to-day responsibility for the operation of the scheme, that an application was received on 19 April 2000, under the Disabled Driver' and Disabled Passenger' (Tax Con cessions) Regulations, 1994, in respect of a vehicle for the transportation of the person concerned. I am informed that the application was refused on the basis that the applicant does not reside with the disabled person, as is required under the regulations.
The applicant was advised of his rights of appeal against this refusal and notice of appeal has recently been received by the Revenue Commissioners. This appeal is currently being processed and the applicant will be advised of the outcome in due course.
