429. Deputy Alan Kelly asked the Minister for Health the amount in advance loans funding given to an organisation (details supplied) by the HSE in each of the past five years; the purpose of the funding; the reason the funding is not provided as part of the normal service agreement with the HSE; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The Government is committed to providing services and supports for people with disabilities which will empower them to live independent lives, provide greater independence in accessing the services they choose, and enhance their ability to tailor the supports required to meet their needs and plan their lives.  This commitment is outlined in the Programme for Partnership Government, which is guided by two principles: equality of opportunity and improving the quality of life for people with disabilities. 

As the Deputy's question relates to a service issue, I have arranged for the question to be referred to the Health Service Executive (HSE) for direct reply to the Deputy.
