Bernard J. Durkan


99 Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Health and Children when it is expected orthodontic treatment will be offered to persons (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17619/01]

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