I thank the Tánaiste for his reply. If the HSE and successive Governments have been aware of the situation over the past number of years, as they should have been, it is very unusual the HSE would leave this out of a draft plan. The Tánaiste is correct that money does not always solve everything but if somebody like Mr. Green and his team put a draft plan together to increase output by 400% then surely they are held to account if that is not done. I ask that the Tánaiste and the Minister for Health to make sure the funding is put in there. It is not just about one part of the country. There are affected children waiting right around the country. If we can resolve this issue by taking them out of pain with this proposal, and there are 100 on the Cappagh list alone, I urge the Tánaiste and the Minister to put the funding in place to resolve it.
