HEALTH Minister James Reilly has said he has not seen the draft report into the death of Savita Halappanavar .
The minister was commenting as the draft version of the report claims that Savita (31) should have received a termination at University College Hospital in Galway and tests showing a possible sepsis infection were not followed up.
She was admitted to the hospital at 17 weeks pregnant and was told she would miscarry.
She died days later of septicaemia.
The minister said it may be an early draft of the report and neither he nor his officials had seen it.
He expected to get the final report in about 10 days.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said he will not be commenting on the report because it has not been finalised.
He also said Savita's husband Praveen should be the first person to be briefed on its content.
"This report has not been concluded, has not been finalised and has not received by the minister," Mr Kenny told the Dail, adding that substantial work has been done on the Government's legislation dealing with abortion.
The report follows a clinical review set up by the Health Service Executive.
All parties mentioned in it have received the sections which relate to them and they can reply before it is finalised.
