TANAISTE BACKS OIREACHTAS COMMITTEES IN THE CERVICAL CHECK SCANDAL

The Tanaiste says that Oireachtas Committees need to be allowed respond to the CervicalCheck scandal as they see fit.

Vicky Phelan and Stephen Teap are to give evidence about their experiences before the Public Accounts Committee today, while the Health Committee will also discuss the issue.

Dr. Gabriel Scally – who’s leading a scoping inquiry into the scandal – is concerned the hearings could slow down his work.

But Simon Coveney says the government can’t tell committees what to do.
