Enda Kenny (Taoiseach, Department of An Taoiseach; Mayo, Fine Gael)
I have just been speaking to the Minister for Health about this. I respect Deputy Martin bringing in the letter he mentioned from 26 July, but there is no capacity in the system to reduce a hospital like this to level 2, nor is there any intention of so doing. What the Deputy has there has no status in the context of the Government making decisions about this.
