Covid-19 (Health): Statements
Paul Murphy (Dublin South West, RISE)
In a response I received yesterday to a parliamentary question I tabled regarding my repeated requests for a breakdown of expenditure under the agreement with the private hospitals to be published, the Minister claimed this information is commercially sensitive and, therefore, will not be published. I have written to the Ceann Comhairle under Standing Order 44A to complain that the Minister has not answered the question and ask that he request that the Minister does so. I have a very simple question for the Minister. Has he at least seen the breakdown of costs for April provided by the private hospitals?
