asked the Minister for Local Government and Public Health if he is aware that the opening of a district hospital in Clogheen, Co. Tipperary, has been delayed owing to the fact that the proposed hospital is occupied by the Gárda Síochána, and if he will take the necessary steps to see that other accommodation is provided for the Gárda Síochána so that the hospital, in accordance with the amalgamation scheme, may be established immediately.
