Vol. 423 No. 1

Written Answers. - Culliton Committee Recommendations.

Ruairí Quinn


271 Mr. Quinn asked the Minister for Health if, in respect of the recommendations of the Culliton Committee he will outline, for each recommendation concerning his Department, the action, if any, which he has already taken or proposes to take, the changes involved and the cost of such action; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The only recommendation of direct relevance to my Department is that overall responsibility for the formulation of a national food policy should be allocated to one Government Department. My Department is represented on the expert group established by the Department of Agriculture to draw up this policy. Also, the development of the potential for export of Irish health services will be taken up in the context of the proposed agency for the development of indigenous industry.
