Dáil Eireann Debate
162. Deputy Paul Connaughton asked the Minister for Finance the reason an application under the disabled drivers and passengers tax concession scheme in the name of a person (details supplied) in County Galway has not been processed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [43776/08]
Minister for Finance (Deputy Brian Lenihan): The initial application for a Primary Medical Certificate under the Disabled Drivers and Disabled Passengers (Tax Concessions) Regulations 1994, is made to the Senior Medical Officer of the relevant local Health Service Executive administrative area.
If the Primary Medical Certificate has been refused in this case, the named person may appeal the refusal to the Medical Board of Appeal, National Rehabilitation Hospital, Rochestown Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. I would point out that the Medical Board of Appeal is independent in the exercise of its functions.
