Written answers (Question to Children)

Noting that the Department of Health retains responsibility for community and specialist disability services, pending the full transfer of functions to my Department in the coming weeks, my Department was not alerted to the specific correspondence referred the Deputy's question. The matter itself was brought to my attention by Minister Rabbitte at the end of December.

Until the transfer of functions takes place between my Department and the Department of Health, the issue in the details supplied is a matter for the Department of Health.
