Written answers (Question to Health)

Following an initial review, the HSE decided that a full investigation of the allegations made in respect of state-funded crisis pregnancy counselling services in the Irish Independent last year was needed and was to be carried out by the former secretary general of the Department of Education, Ms. Brigid McManus. This is the audit to which I referred in my reply last week. As I mentioned then, this audit is nearing completion and it is anticipated that this process will be finalised within the next 6 to 8 weeks.
