I propose to take Questions Nos. 354 and 356 together.

I wish to advise the Deputy that I am not in a position to comment on the diagnosis, or treatment, of health conditions. Matters concerning the HSE, including hospital programmes that may be offered to children diagnosed with a condition, are more appropriate for the attention of my Cabinet colleague, the Minister for Health.
