720. To ask the Minister for Health the reason women in the Saolta Hospital Group are being allegedly discriminated against in relation to being allowed a partner attend their c-section birth; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that no partner is allowed into theatre to attend a c-section birth in University Hospital Galway whereas they are in University Hospital Castlebar; his views on whether the practice is acceptable; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to you directly as soon as possible.
