191. Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the choice of adult dental scheme has been suspended since 1984.
Minister for Health (Dr. O'Hanlon) Rory O'Hanlon
Minister for Health (Dr. O'Hanlon): I am aware that the ad hoc dental scheme has been suspended by some health boards since 1984. However, the Deputy will be aware that decisions concerning the allocation of funds to the different services they provide are primarily a matter for the health boards concerned and in present financial circumstances it would be inappropriate for me to intervene directly in such decisions.
 I have already asked my Department to carry out a review of the operation of health board dental services and this is proceeding.
