Asked if he had confidence in the management at Cervical Check, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he had absolute confidence in the screening programme, but in terms of personnel, he said he did not want to condemn any individuals before the review was completed.
He said he wanted to establish the facts and urged anyone who has been called for screening to attend.
Mr Varadkar also said it was currently being verified that the 206 women were informed of the situation and said he thinks they have been and wants to make sure that is the case.
