[376] Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Social and Family Affairs if and when rent support will be restored in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Dublin; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [24374/09]

  Deputy Mary Hanafin: The position remains as advised in Parliamentary Question 319 which I answered for the Deputy on 19 May 2009.

The Executive has advised that, while the person concerned had been in receipt of rent supplement, payment was discontinued on his return to work.

The Executive has further advised that there is no record of an appeal against the decision to discontinue payment of rent supplement to the person concerned. It remains open to this person to appeal against the decision to a HSE Appeals Officer.
