More Details Emerge About GP Contract Ahead Of No Confidence Vote

The government has criticised Sinn Féin for bringing a motion of no confidence in the Tánaiste.

Leo Varadkar is expected to survive the vote tomorrow night over the leaking of a confidential document.

Opposition parties are preparing to back Sinn Féin's no confidence motion tomorrow.

It's been brought over the leaking of a GP contract, which TD Eoin O'Broin says goes beyond bad practice.

The motion will put pressure on those in Fianna Fáil and the Green Party who disapprove of what Leo Varadkar did, but will be expected by party leadership to back him regardless.

The magazine which alleged Leo Varadkar lied to the Dáil has been criticised for getting its facts wrong by a spokesperson for the Tánaiste.

Village Magazine claims Varadkar met Dr Matt O Tuathail at least ten times last year around the dates he passed on a confidential GP contract to him.

But a spokesperson for the Tánaiste says many of the alleged encounters did not happen.

Spokespeople for Ministers Paschal Donohoe and Simon Harris also said meetings with them cited in the article never happened.
