Written answers (Question to Children)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 551 to 553, inclusive, together.

I can confirm to the Deputy that as Minister for Children and Youth Affairs responsibility for community care homes does not fall under my remit. These questions might be more appropriate to the Department of Health.
