I propose to take Questions Nos. 89 to 93, inclusive, together.

As the Deputy's question's relates to service matters, I have arranged for the question's to be referred to the Health Service Executive (HSE) for direct reply to the Deputy. If the Deputy has not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days, he can contact my Private Office and they will follow the matter up with the HSE.
