Jack Wall


90 Mr. Wall asked the Minister for Health and Children when a person (details supplied) in County Kildare will be in receipt of orthodontic treatment; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17553/01]

The provision of orthodontic services for eligible persons in County Kildare is the statutory responsibility of the Eastern Regional Health Authority. Therefore, I have asked its chief executive officer to investigate the position in relation to this case and to reply directly to the Deputy as a matter of urgency.
