Written answers (Question to Health)

The Department of Health is not responsible for administering funding to voluntary response groups to assist in the purchase of assets. The Health Service Executive distributes National Lottery funding to community groups and voluntary organisations and so I have referred this to the Health Service Executive for direct reply to the Deputy.
