Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar has said that the decision to locate two primary care centres in the Health Minister's constituency "does look like" stroke politics.

He said that he would like to know more about the selection of locations before he could claim to be an expert on it.

However, he said that you have to trust your Cabinet colleagues to make the right decisions.

Mr Varadkar said that he trusts James Reilly in that regard.

The Transport Minister also said that allowances to public servants could potentially be put back on the table as part of a wider review by the Government of the Croke Park Agreement.
