Responsibility for the provision of health services to persons with an intellectual disability and those with autism in the Dublin area is a matter, in the first instance, for the Eastern Regional Health Authority. My Department has therefore asked the regional chief executive of the authority to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply directly to him.
