Under Standing Order 51 (1), a question may be referred to a body and the referred body has ten working days to provide a response to the Deputy.

The HSE Parliamentary Affairs Division (PAD) processes Parliamentary Questions (PQs) referred by the Minister for Health for direct reply to the Oireachtas member.

Officials in the Parliamentary Support Unit in my Department hold regular meetings with their counterparts in the HSE to discuss the management of parliamentary obligations.
