Written Answers. - Report on Disability.

Mary Wallace


34 Miss M. Wallace asked the Minister for Health when the report of the review body for people with physical and sensory disabilities will be published; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8122/95]

Limerick East): I expect to receive the report of the Review Group on Physical and Sensory Disability within the next few months. I would hope to be in a position to publish the report shortly thereafter.

As indicated in the health strategy, it is my intention to proceed to implement the review group's recommendations in the coming four years. The Deputy may wish to note that additional funding of £2 million revenue and £2.5 million capital has been provided in 1995 for the development of services for people with physical disabilities.
