Written Answers. - Health Board Allowances.

  370. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Health and Children if domiciliary care will be offered to a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8601/02]

  Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): The assessment of entitlement to and payment of the domiciliary care allowance in any individual case is a matter for the relevant health board. My Department has therefore asked the regional chief executive officer of the Eastern Regional Health Authority to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply to him directly.
