Ó Snodaigh calls for return of Dáil to discuss growing threat of war in Iraq

12 January, 2003


ly to have a special sitting on the growing threat of war in Iraq."

Responding to reports that Shannon airport is benefiting financially from the build up to the war, Deputy Ó Snodaigh said:

"It is disgraceful that potential financial gains to a war in Iraq are being used as a justification for the use of Shannon airport by US warplanes. The use of Shannon is wrong, is against our position of neutrality and should end immediately. It is imperative that a situation is not allowed to develop whereby the economic viability of the airport becomes dependent on such sources of finance."ENDS
