asked the Minister for Health if it is intended to proceed with the appointment of a doctor as a general practitioner in the Skreen area of County Sligo, as decided by the North Western Health Board; if so, when the appointment will be made; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

No proposal to proceed with the appointment referred to has as yet been received in my Department. If it is received it will be considered in the context of the general criteria in relation to the filling of such vacancies.
