Listen: Taoiseach Says Those Criticising Planning Framework Are Engaging In Opposition For Its Own Sake.

: 02/14/2018 - 17:26

The Taoiseach has accused those criticising the National Planning Framework of providing 'opposition for oppositions sake'.

A group against the plan says Leo Varadkar is trying to announce it without involving the Dáil.

They want the plan to have to be approved by all TDs, but the government fears that would just lead to parish pump politics.

Kildare North TD, Catherine Murphy, says "that politicians from across the political spectrum had made submissions to the draft Capital Plan when it was first unveiled and yet the Government are now about to formally launch the final plan without any consultation about what, if any, elements of those submissions have been taken on-board"

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar says their opposition of this broad group isn't genuine:
