Minister of State at the Department of Health (Mr. Currie): Information on Austin Currie Zoom on Austin Currie I understand that this child was never in the care of the Eastern Health Board and that the placement was a private family arrangement. Allowances paid under the Child Care (Placement of Children with Relatives) Regulations, 1995 are made in respect of children who are in the care of health boards and where the provisions of the regulations are met. The Eastern Health Board has indicated that if the person in question wishes to seek advice in the matter, she should contact their social work service in Benburb Street Health Centre.
