Roscommon Independent TD Denis Naughten has secured a Dáil debate tonight to seek a reversal of the HSE's decision to cut the allocation of home help hours to older people.

Deputy Naughten says he secured the debate with the support of the Ceann Comhairle due to the number of TDs seeking to have the matter discussed.

The Independent TD says the HSE's decision to suspend the allocation of home help to new entrants will leave carers unable to take a break from the care they provide 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

He claims the HSE move is at complete variance with Government policy, and he's asking the HSE to reverse the cuts immediately.
