Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

The first time it was brought to my attention that there would be a cost overrun in the national children’s hospital was on 9 November 2018. This was a brief conversation in the context of a wider discussion on health policy. However I was not advised of the full extent of the overrun at that time and I asked the Minister for Health for full information.
