Minister of State at the Department of the Health and Children (Deputy Áine Brady): Information on Aine Brady  Zoom on Aine Brady  I refer the Deputy to my recent reply in the Seanad in which I confirmed that in light of the current financial difficulties generally, the HSE has had to reassess the projects that can be progressed within its limited capital resources and is not in a position to bring the Ballinamore facility beyond design stage this year. The possibility for commencing construction will be revisited by the HSE when finalising its capital programme for 2011, within the context of the overall demands for capital developments.
