In his weekly message to Fine Gael members Enda Kenny TD had the following to say of the Byelections in Donegal, Waterford and Dublin.
Lets see if the slender Government majority will hold?Enda Kenny TD said:The Fine Gael Front Bench met on Wednesday and decided on an aggressive Dáil session for the coming months.
Pairing arrangements will be severely curtailed and Ministers will only be allowed pairs when the interest of the country is at stake.
I will move the writs for the three bye-elections on Wednesday when the Dáil resumes.
These will be voted upon. It is an abuse to have the Government proposing to use taxpayers’ money in defending their refusal to give the people of Donegal South West the opportunity to have their say.
This will be the subject of a court case in October if the Government again votes down the bye-elections.
