122. Mr. McGuinness asked the Minister for Health and Children if a medical card will be issued immediately to a person (details supplied) in County Kilkenny; and if he will examine the full and ever changing details of the case and expedite a response. [17337/03]
Mr. Martin Mr. Martin
Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): Responsibility for the provision of a medical card is, by legislation, a matter for the chief executive officer of the relevant health board or authority. My Department has therefore asked the chief executive officer of the South-Eastern Health Board to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and to reply to him directly.
