YESTERDAY GRASSROOTS MEMBERS of the Labour Party announced that they’re to meet this week to call for the resignation of James Reilly.

In today’s Sunday Business Post it’s reported that the health minister knew that the HSE had chosen a site owned by one of his political supporters  in Balbriggan for a primary care centre before he added the town to a list of options for public private partnerships.

The Sunday Independent meanwhile reports that Minister Reilly has claimed that the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste were aware of plans to place two primary care centres in his own North Dublin constituency.

Earlier this week Reilly insisted that he had ‘no hand, act or part’ in the choice of the Balbriggan site.

Here’s the results from the last time we asked about James Reilly’s position.

What do you think today? Should James Reilly resign?
