The Taoiseach has publicly distanced himself from comments made by an independent minister over judges.
Transport minister Shane Ross says judges need a register of interests, so that it is clear if they have vested interests in a case.
When reminded that judges already take an oath to consider every case "without fear or favour", the minister said sometimes judges forget it.
In the Dail this lunchtime Enda Kenny insisted that was absolutely not the case:
Today's comments are not the first time the Taoiseach has used the Dáil chamber to dismiss comments from a cabinet minister.
In October he dismissed a proposal from jobs minister Mary Mitchell O'Connor, who wanted to give returned emigrants a lower rate of income tax.
Kenny described it as "unfair and discriminatory", after Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin labelled it as "bananas".
