Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): Information on Micheál Martin  Zoom on Micheál Martin  I propose to take Questions Nos. 98, 105, 265 and 274 together.

Services at the City of Dublin Skin and Cancer Hospital are provided under an arrangement with the Eastern Regional Health Authority, ERHA. In relation to the future role of the hospital, a joint working group comprising representatives of the hospital and the ERHA was established in late 2001 in order to determine the services which will be provided by the hospital to the authority. My Department has, therefore, asked the regional chief executive of the authority to investigate the issues raised and to respond directly to the Deputies.
