Slush funds haven't gone away you know

"Wexford Labour Cllr George Lawlor's recent remarks about Sinn Feins objection to the funding of the development of Wexford General Hospital is confusing to say the least.  Is Cllr. Lawlor insinuating that funds taken from the tax payer be used as a private slush fund to protect the private interests of ministers in securing their own voter base thus resulting in the demise of many other constituencies just because they have not got a serving minister?"

"Sinn Fein's statement is simple; you cannot continue to build a republic on the grounds of inequality, unfairness or prejudice.  County Wexford Sinn Féin can proudly stand over their unblemished record of campaigning for Wexford General Hospital and will continue to do so now and in the future."

"Sinn Fein believes that each major project should be taken on an equal and fair basis, without prejudice .  Under this criteria Wexford General Hospital would qualify in its own right.  So Cllr Lawlor can rest assured that Sinn Fein will continue to insist on transparency and accountability, as was faithfully promised by the current Government."
