I understand from the HSE that TUSLA, the Child and Family Agency, has responsibility for bereavement counselling services for children under 18 years of age that have been affected by the sudden death of a parent. As such, the Deputy may wish to put this question to my colleague, the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, as TUSLA falls under the aegis of her Department.

Question No. 267 withdrawn.
