Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 240 and 241 together.

I have no role or function in relation to the National Asset Management Agency. As regards the other detailed queries raised by the Deputy, as these are service matters, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to him directly.
