452. Mr. McGuinness asked the Minister for Health and Children if a medical card will be renewed in the name of a person (details supplied) in County Kilkenny on medical grounds as a matter of urgency; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25119/03]
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-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 reply to him directly.
