  260. Mr. B. Smith asked the Minister for Health and Children the position regarding the development control plan for Cavan General Hospital; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [21204/04]

  Mr. Martin:An outline planning brief has been completed for Cavan General Hospital, reflecting the work of the hospital project team. In April, my Department approved an application from the North Eastern Health Board to appoint a design team to formulate an outline development control plan for the hospital in accordance with the briefing document. The board is currently in the process of formally appointing the selected design team and it is expected that work on the preparation of the plan will commence shortly.
