Written Answers. - Hospital Water Supply.

Nora Owen


638 Mrs. Owen asked the Minister for Health and Children the current situation with regard to water supply in St. Ita's Hospital in Portrane, County Dublin; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that there have been further complaints despite a major breakdown in water supply some months ago which was repaired; the moneys available to provide an adequate safe water supply for St. Ita's; if he will supply such moneys; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The maintenance of St Ita's Hospital is a matter for the Eastern Regional Health Authority. I have, therefore, referred this matter to the regional chief executive of the authority to investigate the matter and to reply directly to the Deputy.
