Responsibility for the provision of funding for services to people with an intellectual disability and those with autism in the Carlow area lies, in the first instance, with the South Eastern Area Health Board. My Department, therefore, has asked the chief executive officer of the health board to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply directly to him.
