Dáil Eireann Debate
146. Deputy Alan Shatter asked the Minister for Health and Children if she will order an inquiry into the procedures followed by the Health Service Executive and the gardaí in relation to a child (details supplied) in County Galway; if correspondence has been entered into by her with the HSE in respect of this matter; and if so, the replies received. [39229/09]
Minister of State at the Department of Health and Children (Deputy Barry Andrews): The matter referred to by the Deputy is proper to the Health Service Executive as the body with statutory responsibility for the management and delivery of health and personal social services under the Health Act 2004.
My Office received representations on this matter in June 2009 and again in October 2009. These representations were forwarded to the Health Service Executive with a request that the matter be examined and a direct reply issued to the correspondent. The Health Service Executive has also been asked, arising from its consideration of the matter, to notify my Office in the event that there are any issues which it considers should be brought to my attention.
