168 Mr. Penrose asked the Minister for Health and Children if he has received an appeal from a person (details supplied) in County Westmeath against a decision not to award her a motorised transport grant; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12966/01]

The assessment of entitlement to and payment of the motorised transport grant in any individual case is a matter for the relevant health board.

Accordingly, the Deputy's question has been referred to the chief executive officer, Midland Health Board, with a request that he examine the query and reply directly to the Deputy as a matter of urgency.
