Written answers (Question to Health)

Under the Public Sector Energy Efficiency Strategy, all public bodies are required to take action to assess and improve their energy usage and efficiency.

In relation to the particular query raised, as this is a matter concerning energy savings across the health service (buildings and health service employees), I have asked the HSE to respond to the Deputy directly.
