Responding to news this evening that Frank Flannery has resigned his positions in Fine Gael and Rehab Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald said he still needs to appear before the Public Accounts Committee.
Deputy McDonald said;
“The one thing missing from Frank Flannery’s statement this evening is the looming question of whether or not he will appear before the Public Accounts Committee.
“Politicians from all parties, including the Taoiseach and Tanaiste have said he must appear before the committee.
“His statement this evening does not change that. He must come before the committee and address the issues of public concern that currently surround him.”
