Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): Information on Micheál Martin  Zoom on Micheál Martin  I met again representatives from Patient Focus on 25 November, 2003. I informed the group that Judge Maureen Harding Clark has been selected to chair an inquiry into the issues raised by the Medical Council's report into the practice of Dr. Michael Neary. The format of the inquiry and its terms of reference are the subject of discussion between my Department and the Office of the Attorney General and I expect to be in a position to bring recommendations before Cabinet shortly. I will be meeting again with representatives of Patient Focus on 17 December 2003 to apprise them of progress in this regard.
