Written Answers. - Health Care Funding.

Róisín Shortall


633 Ms Shortall asked the Minister for Health and Children if he will provide details of 1998 and 1999 funding to the Cork social and education project; and if he will ensure that funding is kept at a level which will enable the project's valuable work to continue. [2267/99]

As the Deputy will be aware, the provision of health services in the Cork area is a matter for the Southern Health Board in the first instance. I understand from the board that discussions are ongoing with the project regarding the level of support for 1998 and 1999. I have asked the chief executive officer to respond directly to the Deputy when these discussions have concluded.
