Parliamentary Questions by Mary Butler TD

The Minister for Health signed legislation on Wednesday 26th June which will allow for the operation of the Medical Cannabis Access Programme on a pilot basis for 5 years. Today I questioned the Tanaiste as to when families that are licensed to purchase medical cannabis will be able to do so in Ireland and will not have to travel to Holland on a 3 monthly cycle.
Fianna Fail put forward a motion in relation to Educational Supports for Children with Special Educational Needs, I used my time to highlight the fact that 3,500 children are waiting for an assessment, the other issue I highlighted is the travel time some children have to travel to access an ASD unit in a primary school.
Questioning the Minister for Health today in relation to what contingencies have been put in place for the Older and more vulnerable in-patients if the strike of health support staff goes ahead tomorrow Thursday. All efforts must be made to avert this strike.
Questioning the Taoiseach in relation to the 2019 HSE Capital Plan before the Dail goes into recess. I asked the same question in December 2018 before the Dail went into the Christmas recess. Still waiting for publication, beyond ridiculous at this stage.
