  Mr. T. O’Malley: I propose to take Questions Nos. 118 and 174 together.

My Department understands that the issue of core funding for the Carmichael Centre, Dublin 7, will be addressed as part of the review of the work of the centre. Agreement has been reached between the Northern Area Health Board and the Eastern Regional Health Authority to contract an independent researcher to commission the review and I understand that the review should be complete by the end of the year.
