Written answers (Question to Health)

The position regarding appeals processes for applications for Motorised Transport Grant which were underway prior to 26th February 2013, is that they will continue to be processed. If the appeal is upheld, payment will be made. I have referred the specific case mentioned by the Deputy to the Health Service Executive, for direct reply to the Deputy.
