With the independence referendum now expected in September, a Dáil all-party group is being established today to keep abreast of Catalan developments, and enhance relations with the Mediterranean region. This grouping is in keeping with parliamentary equivalents across Europe, and while the article only mentions FF, FG, and SF, one presumes Labour and Independent members are also involved.

It's just an informal discussion grouping, so it wouldn't actually cost the "taxpayer" anything.
Apart from the piss up's in Barcelona...

Ah, lots of opportunities to visit the area at the taxpayers expense. One way of getting a free holiday that does not involve buying raffle tickets or entering competitions on awful radio shows.

Surely this is an internal Spanish/Catalonian matter, its none of anyones business other than their own, our government shouldnt be getting involved in another countries domestic policies.

Which is why it isn't.
