Denis Naughten

Ceist:

267 Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Health and Children when outstanding information from health boards requested in Parliamentary Question No. 349 of 13 May 2003 will be furnished; his views on whether this delay is satisfactory; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19335/03]

It is my understanding that, of the ten health boards, eight have made replies to the parliamentary question referred to by the Deputy. Officials in my Department have been in contact with both of the boards with replies outstanding and have been assured that this information will be furnished to the Deputy by the end of next week.
