Student Universal Support Ireland
136. Deputy Seán Canney asked the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science his views on the fact that fees for Irish students studying elsewhere in the EU are not paid by SUSI, as a maintenance grant alone is payable; his further views on whether this is discriminatory against such students studying in other EU countries as both fees and maintenance grants are available for students studying here; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Free Travel Scheme
407. Deputy Seán Canney asked the Minister for Social Protection if she will consider extending free travel to include children who are being cared for by a carer receiving the carer’s allowance in view of the fact that at present the carers receive free travel but the children do not; if her attention has been drawn to the burden this places on low-income families in which children have medical conditions and often have multiple medical appointments; and if she will make a statement on the matter.
