Written Answers. - Departmental Contracts.

Deputy Leo Varadkar asked the Minister for Health and Children if a company (details supplied) has been awarded contracts by her Department, or its agencies, since 2000 to date in 2008; the value and the length of any contract signed; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [35104/08]

  Deputy Mary Harney: My Department has no record of having awarded any contracts to the company in question. The placing of contracts by an agency is an operational matter for the agency in question. My Department does not routinely hold information of this nature. My Department has referred the Deputy’s question to the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Health Service Executive for its attention and direct reply to the Deputy.
