Deputy Noel J. Coonan asked the Minister for Health and Children her plans to reinstate a person (details supplied) to the Borrisoleigh area as this person operates in Templemore; the timeframe for the move; the reason for the delay; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [31757/08]

[1024]   Deputy Mary Harney:Subject to overall parameters set by Government, the Health Service Executive has the responsibility for determining the composition of its staffing complement. In that regard, it is a matter for the Executive to manage and deploy its human resources to best meet the requirements of its Annual Service Plan for the delivery of health and personal social services to the public. The Executive is the appropriate body to consider the matter raised by the Deputy. My Department has requested the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Executive to arrange to have the matter investigated and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
