That is not strictly true because the Mater Hospital will own the car park. That is a significant factor for access for parents and children. Does the Minister not accept that grave and serious concerns are being expressed by the authorities at St. James's Hospital, Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin and Tallaght Hospital about the decision that has been made? The Minister is saying she is not in a position to judge those concerns, but is she prepared to establish an independent review to assess the difficulties which have been highlighted and exposed in the analysis carried out by the hospitals? It is important that we get this right. It is quite clear there are concerns about political interference. It is believed that problems will arise which will have a significant impact on patients.
