Protection of Children's Health from Tobacco Smoke Bill 2012: Second Stage
David Norris (Independent)
In that case I will just end by saying that this is a principle and we do discriminate against children. It is awful that we do it. I will communicate with the Minister on a matter, the fact that to my certain knowledge a 14 year old girl is being told that she must wait 18 months for an endoscopy. We should put children first. As an adult I got an endoscopy within a week because I was on the highest scheme in the VHI. So is this girl. We must do something about that.
