Fianna Fáil have said that it would be unwise to back a motion of no confidence in the Health Minister Simon Harris, despite his handling of information in regards to the National Children’s Hospital overrun.
Speaking to RTÉ News, on Tuesday, the party’s finance spokesman Michael McGrath said it would be national sabotage to support the motion which is set to be submitted by Sinn Féin later today.
Mr McGrath said that it would be wrong to thrust people into a general election in the middle of March given the uncertainty surrounding Brexit.
He also said it is highly important that his party and others provide stability for the Irish people, stating that is why his party backed the continuation of the current confidence and supply agreement last December.
Mr McGrath’s comments come after the Health Minister came in for strong criticism over his handling of information in regards to the National Children’s Hospital overrun in recent weeks.
