An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Leo Varadkar (Taoiseach, Department of An Taoiseach; Dublin West, Fine Gael)
I thank the Deputies for raising this issue. Additional funding was provided in the budget this year for home help and home care packages. I am afraid I do not have details on how it is being distributed around the country or on individual cases. I understand, however, that there will be a Topical Issue debate on this issue later today. I imagine the Minister for Health or a Minister of State in his Department will be present and may be able to give Deputies a more detailed answer.
