I propose to take Questions Nos. 428 to 431, inclusive, together.

The Programme for a Partnership Government includes a commitment to publish "a plan for advancing Neuro-rehabilitation services in the community". The development of an implementation framework for the National Policy & Strategy for the provision of Neuro-rehabilitation Services in Ireland is a matter for the Health Service Executive (HSE).

The HSE’s Social Care Division and its Clinical Programme and Strategy Division are working in tandem to progress this.

The detailed information sought by the Deputy in terms of this work is a service matter for the HSE. Accordingly I have arranged for the Deputy’s questions to be referred to the Executive for direct reply to the Deputy.
