Vol. 239 No. 10

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Nurses' Travelling Expenses.


asked the Minister for Health if he will now sanction payment of travelling expenses to public health nurses in Dublin and Cork as requested by the health authorities concerned with effect from 1st January, 1968; and, if not, why.

My sanction has been conveyed to proposals submitted by the Dublin and Cork Health Authorities for the payment of fixed travelling allowances to their public health nurses.

Could the Minister give me the date of the sanction because it had not percolated down through the channels that informed me?

It was on the Tuesday or the Wednesday of the week before Easter. It might have been 31st March.
