Written answers (Question to Health)

I must apologise to the Deputy for the delays he has experienced in getting through to my Departmental office. I am sure he will appreciate that the volume of correspondence received in the office over the last few months has been extraordinary and this has unfortunately resulted in some delays in responding to queries. I have asked my Private Office to contact the Deputy’s Office to assist with his query. Furthermore, I have asked my officials to ensure that queries are responded to promptly. The Deputy, and other Deputies, can contact 01-6354956 where my officials will address queries.
