Question:

539 Mrs. B. Moynihan-Cronin asked the Minister for Health and Children the proposals, if any, he has to replace the public health dentist in Dingle, County Kerry. [1123/99]

As the recruitment of dental staff in County Kerry is the statutory responsibility of the Southern Health Board I have asked the chief executive officer of the Southern Health Board to investigate the position in relation to this matter and to reply to the Deputy directly as a matter of urgency.
