THE Government is resisting calls for a full independent public inquiry into the death of Savita Halappanavar.



Her husband Praveen Halappanavar is refusing to cooperate with the inquiry because of the HSE's involvement.

Public Spending Minister Brendan Howlin said the coalition wanted an investigation that would provide answers "speedily, thoroughly and comprehensively".

"We don't want a tribunal that goes on for ever more," he said on RTE's Morning Ireland.
