Taoiseach should publish details of any deals made to secure crucial Dáil votes last night – Eoin Ó Broin TD

Sinn Féin Housing spokesperson Eoin Ó Broin TD has called on An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to publish the details of any deals that may have been done with TDs in order to secure their votes against a motion of no confidence in Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy last night.

Teachta Ó Broin was speaking after the Minister Murphy survived last nights vote with the support of Independent TDs such as Noel Grealish, Michael Lowry and Denis Naughten.

Deputy Ó Broin said;

“As new homeless figures recorded a new record level of homelessness yesterday, Minister Eoghan Murphy and his policy Rebuilding Ireland were protected from a no confidence motion by Fianna Fáil in the Dáil.

“This was a missed opportunity to change the direction of housing policy in this state.

“The Minister was also aided in his survival by independent TDs Noel Grealish, Michael Lowry and Denis Naughten.

“I think it is important that the Taoiseach tells the public whether or not and special deals were done with these TDs in order to secure their votes last night.  And if deals were done then the public has a right to know the detail of them and how much they will cost the state.

“So I am calling on An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to publish any deals that may have been done with TDs in order to secure their votes to save the Housing Minister last night.”
