203. Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin asked the Minister for Health the number of positions of employment currently funded across all local and regional drug task forces.  [12591/15]

Minister for Health (Deputy Leo Varadkar): It is assumed that the Deputy is referring to staff employed to support the day-to-day operation of Local and Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Forces.   Drug and Alcohol Task Force co-ordinators are, in the main, employed by the Health Service Executive (HSE). However, the HSE also allocates funding to Drug and Alcohol Task Forces for other support workers, including the posts of development worker and administrator.   In the circumstances, I have asked the HSE to collate the information requested and to respond to the Deputy directly.
