A Fine Gael Minister says Sinn Fein should go to the gardaí if they believe there’s been a leak at Cabinet.
It’s after Opposition TD Matt Carthy used Dail privilege to claim Simon Harris leaked the Katherine Zappone appointment to journalists.
A spokesperson for Minister Harris says this was a clear misuse of Dail privilege and it’s untrue.

Junior Minister Peter Burke had this message for Deputy Carthy this morning:
"I would say to Matt Carthy, if you have such evidence let him come forward and have it tested."
"I as a TD and a Minister for state take very seriously my responsibilities and I know that leaking from cabinet is a criminal offence."
