SECTION 4
Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin moved amendment No. 2:
In page 4, to delete lines 1 to 4 and substitute the following:
“(b) In administering the Scheme the Executive shall ensure that it is user-friendly and that applicants are assisted at every stage in the making of their applications and that application procedures are as straightforward and comprehensible as possible.”.

The purpose of the amendment is to delete subsection (3)(b) and substitute the following paragraph: “In administering the Scheme the Executive shall ensure that it is user-friendly and that applicants are assisted at every stage in the making of their applications and that applica- tion procedures are as straightforward and comprehensible as possible.”

Subsection (3)(b) as it stands now:
“The Executive may enter into an arrangement with a person under which that person may perform any part of the Executive’s function arising under paragraph (a) on behalf of the Executive.”
In simple terms, it is a mandate for the privatisation of the executive function of administering the nursing homes support scheme, otherwise known as the fair deal scheme.
