Strategy for older people: not this year

The Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly, told Aengus O Snodaigh (SF, Dublin SC) that work on the new Positive ageing strategy for older people was on-going and would not be concluded before the end of the year (Dail Eireann, Debates, 14th September 2011, 462-3).  The strategy would not propose new services but rather set the strategic direction for future policies, programmes and services.
