Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Minister for Health and Children)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 408 and 413 together.

All the payments accruing from the erection of masts on the roof of Hawkins House, where my Department's Headquarters are located, are paid directly to the Office of Public Works, the owners of the building.

The position regarding masts erected on Health Service Executive (HSE) buildings is an operational matter for the HSE. I have forwarded the above Questions to the HSE for direct reply to the Deputy.
