  162.  Deputy Pat Breen  Information on Pat Breen  Zoom on Pat Breen   asked the Minister for Health and Children  Information on Mary Harney  Zoom on Mary Harney   if she will report on the immunisation programme in schools in County Clare for the past two years; the uptake for DTaP/IPV, MMR and BCG vaccines; the schools involved, in tabular form; if all schools participated in this programme; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [21380/10]

Minister for Health and Children (Deputy Mary Harney): Information on Mary Harney  Zoom on Mary Harney  The matters raised by the Deputy are service issues and are the responsibility of the Health Service Executive. I wish to advise the Deputy that, due to industrial action affecting the HSE, it is not possible for the Executive to supply current information in relation to the school immunisation programme. If this matter remains of continuing concern to you, however, I would invite you to raise it with me again in due course.
