Ceist:

Deputy Seán Crowe asked the Minister for Health further to Parliamentary Question No. 707 of 13 May 2020, the proposals he plans to implement to lower the 59 month waiting list for school age team and 30 month waiting list for early intervention team support for children with special needs in south west Dublin; his views on whether this is inadequate; 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 service matters, I have arranged for the question to be referred to the Health Service Executive (HSE) for direct reply to the Deputy.
