Is the Minister for Health and Children not concerned that the UK company we are discussing has declared a net loss of €500 million? Is she suggesting that not only has this company been paid for services, she intends to complete the contract with a €59 million payment without expressing concerns about the current situation? The company's chief executive officer has resigned and there has been a late declaration of an enormous loss. There are major concerns in Britain's National Health Service regarding the possibility of this company delivering services.

I acknowledge the change of status of the Minister for Health and Children and acknowledge also that she is one of the very few women Members of the House and is unique in having led a political party and having been Tánaiste.
