Mr. Durkan Mr. Durkan
 Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Health and Children if increased nursing home subvention can be awarded in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [2059/07]
Mr. S. Power Mr. S. Power
Mr. S. Power: I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the basic rate of subvention has been increased to a maximum of €300 per week. In addition the Health Services Executive may pay an enhanced subvention to people who cannot afford to meet the cost of care and I have provided extra funding of €30m in 2007 for this purpose. It is open to the person concerned to apply directly to the HSE.
