Tánaiste Leo Varadkar will face questions in the Dáil tomorrow over claims in Village Magazine that he leaked a confidential document on the deal with the Irish Medical Organisation to a rival group.

The article alleged that the then-Taoiseach passed the document on to Dr Maitiú Ó Tuathail, head of the National Association of General Practitioners.

Daniel McConnell, political editor of the Irish Examiner, and Professor Gary Murphy of the School of Law and Government at DCU joined us to discuss what kind of questions the Tánaiste is likely to face and whether he might be expected to resign.

We were also joined by former Transport Minister Shane Ross, who spoke about his new book In Bed with the Blueshirts and gave his thoughts on the controversy.
