Labour hides behind spurious ruling to allow hiking of council rents

4 March, 2013


Sinn Fein councillors Larry O Toole and Micheal Mac Donncha were ordered removed from Dublin City Council after protesting at the ruling out of order of their party's motion requiring the city manager not to raise council rents on the basis of the family home tax

Cllrs O'Toole and MacDonncha said:
“This ruling reduced Dublin City Council to farce and all to save the Labour Party from having to vote against our motion to stop rents being raised on the basis of the family home tax. An identical motion was ruled in order and adopted at Monaghan County Council.

We will contine to oppose this unjust tax all along the line.”
