354. Mr. Allen asked the Minister for Finance when a decision will be made on an application for a person (details supplied) in County Cork for the VAT concessions for vehicles suitable for persons suffering from a disability. [5154/06]
Mr. Cowen Mr. Cowen
Mr. Cowen: I have been informed by the Revenue Commissioners that they do not have any record of an application by the relevant person under the disabled drivers and disabled passengers (tax concessions) scheme. Therefore, I presume the Deputy is referring to the preliminary application process for a primary medical certificate under the scheme. This certificate is issued by the senior medical officer of the appropriate area of the Health Service Executive on the basis of a clinical assessment.
The medical officer is independent in this function and I do not have any role in that application process.
