Question:

97 Ms M. McGennis asked the Minister for Health and Children his proposals for an improved speech therapy service for children attending Loreto junior primary, Loreto senior primary, Scoil Iosagáin and the Marist primary school in the Crumlin area. [4024/02]

Responsibility for the provision of health related support services for children with special needs in the Crumlin region rests with the Eastern Regional Health Authority. My Department has, therefore, asked the chief executive officer of the authority to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and to reply to her directly.
