When all is said and done it’s the way we go about procuring capital projects that is the problem, says Fergus Finlay.
SHOULD Simon Harris lose his job over the cost of the National Children’s Hospital? Should the hospital be stopped? Should we go back to the drawing board?
The answer to those three questions, in my humble opinion, is no. If Simon Harris should be sacked, so should every minister who has a capital project in his or her budget. As far as I can tell (and I have no more or less knowledge than anyone else) he’s been grappling with a massively difficult problem as well as anyone could.
