Minister of State at the Department of Health and Children (Dr. Moffatt): Stage 3 plans are under examination in my Department for the proposed nursing unit at Ballyconnell. Stage 2 of the planning of the unit at Virginia is proceeding.
While final decisions have yet to be made in relation to the 1998 capital programme for older people, it is the intention of the Department that both projects will be considered in the course of the review of the overall capital programme.
