Mc Hugh says incoming minister must examine plight of sub contractors

Donegal North East TD Joe Mc Hugh says as soon as a new Health Minister is appointed on Wednesday, he'll be calling on him or her to ensure that questions are addressed relating to sub contractors who are owed money in respect of work done at the extension to Letterkenny General Hospital.

Since Mc Namara Construction went into receivership last year, some sub contractors have been left unpaid.

Deputy Mc Hugh says that there is 1.3 million euro in HSE coffers which has not yet been released. He says there may be some leeway in how this money is spent, and he wants the incoming minister to look into that as quickly as possible............
