Dublin South TD Peter Matthews Cautioned by Taoiseach
Dublin South TD Peter Matthews has been cautioned by Taoiseach Enda Kenny, over a contraversial vote during a Finance Committee.
Deputy Matthews provoked a motion which demanded that the Governor of the Central Bank attend a Finance Committe Meeting, before the payment of the €3.1 billion promissory note debt.
The motion passed against the wishes of the Government, after 2 Fine Gael commmitte members were locked outside the committee room during the vote.
However, it’s not thought that Deputy Matthews will lose the party whip or be otherwise punished.
