Mr. F. McGrath Mr. F. McGrath
Mr. F. McGrath asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if a person (details supplied) will be supported in relation to their medication costs; and if they will be given the maximum support. [2501/07]
Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: The Remembrance Fund is administered by the Remembrance Commission under the terms of the Scheme of Acknowledgement, Remembrance and Assistance to Victims in this Jurisdiction of the Conflict in Northern Ireland. In November the Government approved my proposal to extend the term of the Commission and the Remembrance Fund until 31 October, 2007.
All applications for assistance are assessed in accordance with the criteria set out in the Scheme. The person referred to by the Deputy has received payments for medical expenses  incurred to date and has, in addition, received the exceptional payment for medical expenses provided for under the Scheme.
I have been informed that the Commission will continue to deal with all applications from this person sympathetically and will meet their medical expenses under the terms of the Scheme.
