Mr. Martin Mr. Martin
Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): Responsibility for the provision of health related support services, including speech and language and occupational therapy services, to children with an intellectual disability and those with autism in the Sligo region rests with the North-Western Health Board. My Department has, therefore, asked the chief executive officer of the board to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply to him directly.
