Ceist:

307 Ms McManus asked the Minister for Health and Children the names and location by hospital of all hospital consultants in public and voluntary hospitals here; and if this information is available from his Department in electronic format. [27553/01]

Comhairle na nOspidéal is the body with statutory responsibility for the regulation of posts of hospital consultants. I understand that Comhairle maintains a record of all posts it regulates and that a copy of the record was provided to the Deputy last year. I have asked Comhairle na nOspidéal to send the current list directly to the Deputy. The list is also available directly form Comhairle na nOspidéal.
