Escalating cost of children’s hospital

 

Sir, – The original cost of the National Children’s Hospital was supposed to be under €1 billion. This has been regularly revised upwards and in fact in the course of the last week has been revised upwards twice, to €1.4 billion and €1.7 billion. Is there one person in the country who actually believes this project will come in under €2billion? – Yours, etc,
