212. Mr. G. Mitchell asked the Minister for Health and Children the acute hospitals which have crèche facilities for staff members; the number of children catered for in each; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25534/01]

Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): The information requested by the Deputy is not routinely collected by my Department. I have, therefore, asked the chief executive officer of each health board and the regional chief executive of the Eastern Regional Health Authority to compile the information requested for each of their areas and to reply directly to the Deputy.
