Adams responds to RTE time for Taoiseach on treaty

22 May, 2012 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has responded to the announcement that Taoiseach Enda Kenny will be afforded time on RTÉ television next Sunday to address the issue of the Austerity Treaty.

Gerry Adams said:

“This is an entirely artificial situation which arises from the fact that Mr Kenny refuses to engage directly with myself in a proper debate on the Austerity Treaty.

“The Taoiseach himself has emphasised the importance of the choice that voters will make on 31st May. It would better for everyone concerned therefore, not least the voting public, for An Taoiseach to agree to such a debate.”
