Written answers (Question to Health)

In relation to the Deputy's request, I would note that much of this material has been previously supplied to the Joint Oireachtas Committee and Public Accounts Committee.

The Deputy may also wish to note that the 2018 and 2019 (up to July) NPHDB minutes are available on the NPHDB's website. However, I have asked the NPHDB to forward their minutes to the Deputy. I have also requested the HSE to forward minutes of the CHP&P Steering Group to the Deputy.

In relation to the CHP&P Board minutes, it will be necessary to review the 2019 minutes before supplying them in order to ensure they do not contain content of a commercially sensitive nature or material of a nature that would affect the management of the project. My Department will review the documents and respond to the Deputy as soon as is practical.
