Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Ballinteer (Dublin) Health Centre.

46. Mr. Horgan asked the Minister for Health when work will start on the health centre in Ballinteer, Dublin; and when the centre will be in operation.

Mr. Haughey: The contractors have been appointed for this project and work on the site has already commenced.

It is expected that the health centre will be in operation early next year.

I am sorry the Deputy is not here to hear the reply.

Dr. O'Connell: I am wondering why it should take a year to complete?

Mr. Haughey: Perhaps we could offer some special incentive to the contractors to get on with it.

Dr. O'Connell: Why not to the workers?

Mr. Haughey: I include the workers in the general situation.
