Responsibility for the provision of funding for services to persons with intellectual disability and those with autism in the Western Health Board region is a matter, in the first instance, for the Western Health Board. My Department has, therefore, asked the chief executive officer of the health board to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply directly to him.
