Department of Health
National Maternity Hospital
422. To ask the Minister for Health further to Parliamentary Question Nos. 486, 502 and 519 of 27 May 2020, the action the State plans to take when the 99-year lease for the land on which the new national maternity hospital will be built expires; the plans in place for the continuity of public maternity care at the site after the 99 years have expired; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10350/20]
It would be inappropriate for me to comment on the specific provisions of the Lease, which has yet to be finalised; however, the position regarding the continuity of maternity care at the site, after the 99 year term of the Lease has expired, has been considered in full.
