Ceist:

493 Cecilia Keaveney asked the Minister for Education and Science when a home tuition allowance payment will be made to a person (details supplied) in County Donegal; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [27488/01]

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that my Department has recently approved a home tuition allocation for the person in question.

Arrangements are also being made to cover a backdating of the provision for the months of April, May and June 2001. My Department will be in contact with the child's parents shortly.
