Taoiseach Enda Kenny has admitted a supplementary budget for health will be needed this year.

 

Spending in the health sector is expected to overrun by €500m in 2014.

Mr Kenny confirmed there will be an overspend this year.

“There will be a necessity to have a supplementary budget [for health] in 2014,” he said in the Dail.

Health spending has continually been a problem area for the Coalition with continual overruns.
