  132. Mr. McGinley asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children if her attention has been drawn to the dilapidated state of Killybegs health centre; if there are plans to have refurbishment works carried out; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [16888/05]

[1854]   Ms Harney: The Health Act 2004 provided for the establishment of the Health Service Executive on 1 January 2005. Under the Act, the executive has the responsibility to manage and deliver, or arrange to be delivered on its behalf, health and personal social services. This includes responsibility for the provision of health centres. Accordingly, my Department has requested the chief officer of the executive’s north-western area to investigate the matter raised and reply directly to the Deputy.
