Mr. McGuinness asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children the number of promotions granted by the Health Service Executive south east in the administration at senior executive level; if senior positions within the HSE are open to outside competition; the number of successful applicants in this regard; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

[1260]   Ms Harney: The Deputy’s question relates to human resource management issues within the Health Service Executive. As these are matters for the Executive under the Health Act 2004, my Department has requested the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Executive to arrange to have them investigated and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
