Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Martin): Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin The pharmacy review group, which held its first meeting on 2 November 2001, was established to examine the pharmacy issues raised in the OECD report on regulatory reform in Ireland and it is now being asked to report as quickly as possible, in view of the revocation of the relevant regulations. The type of framework, whether statutory or otherwise, required for community pharmacy services will be considered when the group reports. I am considering a number of options pending the completion of the work of the group.
