Does the Minister accept that there is a concern that the decision to locate the hospital on this site was politically influenced and that having looked at the site, there are serious questions over it? For example, Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children would transfer its services from a 15-acre site to one restricted to less than four acres to include all paediatric services. The deal offered to the hospital will be on a flying leasehold under which the hospital would have no ownership or charge of anything underground, including the carparking. Access is difficult and serious concerns have been raised in the report from Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children, which I thought the Minister would have made it her business to see.

Is the Minister saying she has not seen the report, or that neither she nor the Health Service Executive has received it?
