Can Simon Harris remain in his role as Minister for Health in the wake of revelations about his handling of the National Children's Hospital overspend?

Documents from the Department of Health have shown that Harris knew the cost for the hospital was likely to overrun months before the rest of Cabinet were informed.

Alan Kelly, Labour spokesperson on health, and Noel Rock, TD for Dublin North West, joined us in studio to discuss the issue.
