To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Thornton on 17 March (WA 189), whether they will place in the Library of the House the exchange of letters between the United Kingdom and Ireland on the payment of €100 million healthcare costs for 2003-06, and on the settlement for 2007-09.

Correspondence between the department and the Irish Government on this matter has been provided on a confidential basis. Therefore, to publish it would be a breach of confidence and would be prejudicial to international relations with the Irish Government. For these reasons, the exchange of letters will not be placed in the Library.
