I propose to take Questions Nos. 631, 760 and 785 together.
With regard to the implications for the Department of Health and Children, of the public service decentralisation plan, my Department must await a decision by Government on the location of the headquarters of the Health Service Executive.
The Health Service Executive has been asked to make a recommendation on the location of the headquarters. I will bring this recommendation to Government and the Government will decide on the location of the headquarters. I have asked the Health Service Executive to give this priority.
I trust that the Deputies will appreciate that my Department is not in a position to furnish the information sought, at this point in time.
