410. To ask the Minister for Health how an organisation which is running multiple services that either seek to prevent drug use, provide counselling to those involved in addiction or educate on the dangers of addiction and which employs more than 50 persons can be expected to function without a centralised co-ordinator; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I propose to take Questions Nos. 409 to 411, inclusive, together.

The project referred to by the Deputy is funded by the Health Service Executive. I have therefore asked the Executive to investigate the matter and reply directly to him.
