Written Answers. - Disabled Person's Maintenance Allowance.


asked the Minister for Health the correct rate of disabled person's maintenance allowance payable to a person (details supplied) in County Cork.

Disabled person's maintenance allowance is not payable to persons who are in institutional care. As the person in question is receiving such care he is not eligible for the allowance. He is, however, receiving a small spending allowance of £9.50 per week.
