Gilmore: There is trust between me and Health Minister23/10/2012 - 15:28:53
The Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore has said there is no breakdown in trust between himself and the Health Minister James Reilly.
He was responding to reports in today's Irish Independent claiming he has bypassed the Minister and is seeking his own advice on the optimum location for the new Children's Hospital.
Mr Gilmore's advisors have been meeting with bidders for the site to discuss the best location for the facility.
Speaking at the launch of a video to promote a 'Yes' vote in the Children's Referendum, Mr Gilmore denied that there is a breakdown in trust between himself and Minister Reilly.
Mr Gilmore said: "There is trust, there is no question of any lack of trust. This is about making sure that we make the best decision in the interests of the public.
"I think the public expect us to do that in a serious way, in an informed way and I am not approaching this issue any different to any other major issue that has to be decided by Government."
