TD seeks review of Primary Medical Certificate 07.03.17

A DONEGAL TD called on the Government to review the criteria for the Primary Medical Certificate.
The cert provides a tax relief or fuel rebate to disabled drivers and passengers and can be used to help people adapt their vehicles.
Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal Charlie McConalogue said: “The current application criteria is extremely restrictive and excludes a large number of people with disabilities from qualifying for the scheme. In simple terms, in order to qualify for the scheme, a person has to be without a limb or completely without the use of a limb. The fact of the matter is that in many cases, the conditions that affect a person’s mobility are not so clear cut." He said people with Cerebral Palsy, MS and Spina Bifida are being disqualified from the scheme.
