Listen: Chair Of Committee On The 8th Says Mullen & McGrath Should Speak Directly To Her About Their Concerns.

: 10/13/2017 - 10:47

The chairperson of the Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment says two anti-abortion members who are threatening to quit should talk to her directly.

Yesterday, Senator Ronan Mullen and Deputy Mattie McGrath held a press conference claiming the process is imbalanced in favour of pro-choice witnesses.

They've  questioned the credibility of the Committee  among whose membership are Kildare North TDs, Catherine Murphy and Bernard Durkan

They also claim the chairperson Senator Catherine Noone isn't giving them enough time to question witnesses.

Senator Noone is rejecting that claim - and hopes the two politicians will re-engage with the committee:
