Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Health, Billy Kelleher TD has reiterated his party’s call for an independent inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar.

Deputy Kelleher commented: “It is becoming more evident every day that an independent inquiry is warranted to investigate the circumstances surrounding the tragic and sudden death of Savita Halappanavar.

“One independent expert is not enough. The family and the public need to have full confidence in the report. As this report will take at least three months to be completed it is important the changes are made now rather than later.”
