Ceisteanna (316)

Bernard Durkan

Ceist:

316. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if she will defer action to discontinue the adult dependant allowance payable to a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [13085/18]

The person concerned is currently in receipt of a personal rate jobseeker's allowance, an adult dependent allowance and a child dependent allowance. Entitlement to the adult dependent allowance is currently under review by an officer of the Department following notification of a change in circumstances. If there is a revised decision the person concerned will be notified in writing.

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
