Department of Health
Drug and Alcohol Task Forces
382. To ask the Minister for Health if funding for the permanent position of co-ordinator for the Tallaght drugs and alcohol task force will be reinstated; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [39130/15]
406. To ask the Minister for Health if he will seek confirmation from the Health Service Executive regarding the intention to restore the funding for the full-time position of co-ordinator of the Tallaght drugs and alcohol task force; his views on the importance of this issue; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [39290/15]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 382 and 406 together.
As these are service matters, they have been referred to the Health Service Executive for attention and direct reply to the Deputy.
If the Deputy has not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days he should contact my Private Office and they will follow up the matter with them.
