Written answers (Question to Health)

Decisions in relation to the funding of the Irish Society for Quality and Safety in Healthcare are proper to the Health Service Executive (HSE), as appropriate to its holding of the Health Vote.

I have arranged to have the Deputy's questions referred to the HSE for attention and a more detailed response.
