Written answers (Question to Minister for Social Protection)

I confirm that the Department is in receipt of an application for carer's allowance from the person in question. In the interests of fairness and equity, applications for carer's allowance are dealt with as far as possible in order of the date they are received in the Department.

On completion of the necessary investigations relating to all aspects of the case a decision will be made and the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.
