Vol. 423 No. 1

Written Answers. - Hospital Waste Incinerator.

Roger T. Garland


268 Mr. Garland asked the Minister for Health if he will confirm that (1) the central hospital waste incinerator planned for St. James Hospital, Dublin 8 is now to be located in County Limerick, and (2) tenders have been requested for this project.

The proposal to site a central incinerator for the disposal of hospital waste from the Dublin area at St. James's Hospital will not be implemented. Neither my Department nor the Mid-Western Health Board has any plans to locate a central hospital waste incinerator in County Limerick and I can confirm that no tenders for such a project have been invited by the board or by any other health agency.
