Michael Ring

Question:

193 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Health and Children if a person (details supplied) in County Mayo will be called for orthodontic treatment in April 2000; and, if so, the date and time in this regard. [4815/00]

As the provision of orthodontic treatment to eligible persons in County Mayo is the statutory responsibility of the Western Health Board I have asked the chief executive officer of that board to investigate the position in relation to this case and to reply to the Deputy directly as a matter of urgency.
