Mr. Perry asked the Tánaiste and Minister  for Health and Children if her attention has been drawn to the fact that the north-west alcohol forum, which includes representatives from various State agencies, community groups, voluntary agencies and commercial interests, has offered Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal as a pilot area to implement an action programme on alcohol abuse and misuse; if her attention has further been drawn to the fact that the forum, sponsored by the health board, published a report on a number of recommendations, ranging from health initiatives to education legislation and community action; the progress made; if she will commit to the mandate; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Ms Harney: I am familiar with the work carried out by the north-west alcohol forum and I welcome its recent report. The pilot project proposed by the forum will be considered as part of the implementation of the recommendations of the reports of the strategic task force on alcohol.
