Mr. G. Mitchell Mr. G. Mitchell
280. Mr. G. Mitchell asked the Minister for Health and Children if he will inquire into concerns by neighbours regarding a sheep being killed on the table of an address (details supplied) in Dublin 8 which appears to receive funding from the South-Western Area Health Board; and if he will make a statement on the steps which have been taken to investigate and deal with the complaints made. [5621/02]
Mr. Martin Mr. Martin
Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): The details provided by the Deputy indicate that the property concerned is privately owned. My Department has been informed that the South-Western Area Health Board does not have a funding arrangement with the property's owner.
I understand that the incident at this address which the Deputy raised has been the subject of Garda inquiries. I am not in a position to say what further action may be taken on foot of these inquiries.
