Written answers (Question to Minister for Health and Children)

The assessment of entitlement to and payment of the mobility allowance, including the payment of arrears, in any individual case is a matter for the relevant health board. Accordingly, the Deputy's question has been referred to the chief executive officer of the North Eastern Health Board with a request that he examine the matter and reply directly to the Deputy as a matter of urgency.
