Ceist:

308 Mr. Gilmore asked the Minister for Health and Children if his Department has retained the services of a person or company (details supplied) since June 1997; if so, the nature of those services; the duration and the fees involved; if this person or company is retained on transactions related to his Department; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I am having the information sought by the Deputy checked out in my Department and will issue a response direct to him as soon as the position has been clarified.
