The Minister for Finance says the government must learn from the process of building the new National Children's Hospital, which Paschal Donohoe has described as "a very painful lesson".

There's been widespread criticism of how cost over-runs at the National Children's Hospital have been handled.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe admits the government got things wrong on the Children's Hospital project:

I accept responsibility for what happened here.

I need to learn and the government needs to learn from what we can do differently on very big projects like this.

HARRIS

The Health Minister apologised to the Dáil yesterday over what he knew and when.

Simon Harris said it was never his intention to mislead the Dáil, and apologised for not adding further detail.

Minister Harris is still facing a motion of no confidence on the matter.
