National Maternity Hospital: Statements
I will finish up. Leasehold is not ownership; it is leasehold of the land. We do not even own the hospital. The Minister might say it is technical but there is no ownership here whatsoever. We finish up by going around in a circle and blame those who dare to ask a question. Does the Minister know when I despaired the most? It was when the deputy chair of the National Maternity Hospital went on the national airwaves to reassure us. I have to say, quite honestly and openly, a Cheann Comhairle, that I thought, sweet Jesus, what have we done as women to allow somebody like this speak in our name and attempt to reassure us that we own this hospital? We go through this labyrinthine document for what?
