O'Keeffe: Govt getting on with business

The Enterprise Minister Batt O'Keeffe has said the people who are gaining in the polls now "are not the ones who have to make decisions and put policies together".

Mr O'Keeffe has been reacting to the results of the latest opinion poll, which yesterday revealed Labour is now the strongest party with support of 35%.

Labour leader Eamon Gilmore is also the most popular choice for Taoiseach if an election was held on 36%.

But Batt O'Keeffe said: "The Government is getting on with business."
