30 March, 2011 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has welcomed Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s willingness to consider a motion of censure in Michael Lowry to be taken in Government time today.

Enda Kenny made the commitment in response to questions from Gerry Adams this morning after Sinn Féin earlier tabled a motion of censure in Michael Lowry.

Speaking during Leaders Questions Deputy Adams said:

“Sinn Féin placed a motion of censure on the Order Paper yesterday and I am pleased that the Taoiseach has indicated his willingness an agreed motion to be debated during Government time this evening.

“The Moriarty Tribunal was established by the Dáil. It has reported back to us. It is vitally important that we act on all the report’s recommendations. This includes those aspects which deal with Michael Lowry. There is nothing personal in this. It is a matter of assuring the public that this type of politics will not be tolerated and that the Dáil has a view on these matters.”
