Written Answers. - Capital Development Allocation.

Noel Ahern

Question:

215 Mr. N. Ahern asked the Minister for Health the amount of capital development allocation to each hospital in the country, voluntary and otherwise, over each of the past three years. [16494/96]

Limerick East): It is not the normal practice to give capital allocations to health boards or voluntary hospitals, other than in respect of urgent fire precaution and maintenance works. The capital commitments arising each year generally arise from decisions on individual projects, many of which involve expenditure over a number of years.

I am setting out in the following statement, for the Deputy's information, the capital funding for each hospital, which was made available by my Department to finance expenditure on the major developments and the principal minor capital requirements included in the health capital programme for the years 1993 to 1995. The expenditure figures for 1996 will not be available until the end of the year.

Capital grants, classified by hospital, in the period 1993 to 1995.
