Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Leyden: asked the Minister for Health if he will resume payment of disabled persons maintenance allowance to a person (details supplied) in County Roscommon, as she was in receipt of pension for the past 10 years; and the reason she is now deemed ineligible for pension.
Minister for Health (Mr. B. Desmond): Following a recent examination by a medical officer of the Western Health Board the person in question was found to be no longer eligible for the allowance on medical grounds.
The person concerned is a postal applicant and he was requested to furnish a form P45 or a statement from his former employer showing that he had become unemployed but he did not do so. The information to enable his entitlement to unemployment benefit to be determined was eventually obtained by his local office who got in touch with his employer.
His unemployment benefit claim was allowed at the maximum rate £68.05 weekly and arrangements have been made to issue him with an order payable at his local post office this week paying all arrears due.
