ESTHOFF made reftel points November 7 to Health Ministry

he described as "important but modest," as the issue was
still pending before the Spanish Council of Ministers (i.e.,
the Cabinet). Perez Lazaro thought the transfer to the GPEI

December 15 (the Council meets every Friday). Post will
EMail the figure to OES/IHA once it is approved by the
