Mr. McGuinness Mr. McGuinness
68. Mr. McGuinness asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children the amount of the repayment which will issue in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kilkenny; the status of the repayment scheme; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [12627/05]
Ms Harney Ms Harney
Ms Harney: The details of a repayment scheme to address the situation following the Supreme Court decision are currently being finalised only following which would it be possible to calculate accurately the amount of repayment due to an individual. The Health Act 2004 provided for the Health Service Executive, which was established on 1 January 2005. Under the Act the executive has the responsibility to manage and deliver or arrange to be delivered on its behalf health and personal social services. This includes responsibility for the issue raised by the Deputy and accordingly my Department has requested the HSE to investigate the matter and reply directly.
