I am happy to confirm the position as set out in my answer of 7 March last and to clarify that, under the long-term illness scheme, the Health Service Executive may arrange for the supply, without charge, of drugs, medicines and medical and surgical appliances to people with cystic fibrosis for the treatment of that condition.
