Taoiseach Says It Was Inappropriate For Varadkar To Share Agreement

The Taoiseach believes it was inappropriate for Leo Varadkar to share a confidential doctors agreement with a friend of his in a GP union.

Micheál Martin has said the Tánaiste's actions were not best practice but that no major advantage was given to anyone by sharing the agreement.

He insists he has confidence in Varadkar and doesn't believe any law was broken.

Tomorrow Tánaiste Leo Varadkar will come before the Dáil to address the issue.

This morning Taoiseach Micheál Martin said he doesn't believe anything illegal happened:

"There was no financial gain for anyone in terms of the sending of this document to the head of the NAGP, that has to be said, there was no material advantage to any person".

"It was not best practice, it was not appropriate to do it in that way."

"The Taniaste has agreed to go into the Dail tomorrow and answer comprehensively any issues around this."
