Sorry folks, but I haven’t the foggiest idea who’s on tonight as, despite my best efforts contacting them, I haven’t been given any info from tv3 on tonight’s #VINB - and it‘s unlikely I‘ll get them at this late stage. I’ll have to fill in the details on the grid as we go along and I hear the broadcast. So it’s just one big surprise to me as well as you! Must be a dolly mixtures type of show planned for tonight - all the news of the day.
Oireachtas Enquiries: will Brendan Howlin's Plan work?
By the way: I've exercised editorial control and deliberately spelt enquiries with an 'e'.Last year a referendum to give the Oireachtas extensive powers to investigate was rejected.
Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin said that this new legislation will allow for the setting up of inquiries that can make findings of uncontested facts.
The minister said powers to compel witnesses will also be simplified and confidential information given by the public will be protected.
What's the latest on the Quinns? Vincent has the details, no doubt with help from Lydia Murphy.
