“Where is the Labour Party?” – Ó Caoláin

Reacting to the decision of Health Minister James Reilly to put the management of University Hospital Galway and other hospital sites to private tender Sinn Féin Health Spokesperson Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin has asked ‘Where is the Labour Party?”

Deputy Ó Caoláin said:

“The decision by Minister for Health James Reilly and his Department to put to private tender the overall management of University Hospital Galway, and other hospital sites, is the clearest indication yet of this Fine Gael-led Government’s real intentions towards our public hospital network. Where, once again, one must ask, is the Labour Party?” asks Sinn Féin Health Spokesperson Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin.

“Minister Reilly must immediately explain this decision and clarify if it is yet another step in Fine Gael's unfolding privatisation agenda or a means to circumvent the terms of the Croke Park Agreement. Either way the decision should be reversed” stated the Sinn Féin Deputy.
