WEXFORD SENATOR TO JOIN BANKING INQUIRY COMMITTEE
Wexford Fine Gael Senator Michael Darcy is to join the banking inquiry committee.
His appointment will ensure the government has a majority on the committee which goes from nine to eleven members.
Labour Senator Susan OKeeffe is also being appointed to the committee.
The move comes after two Labour senators failed to show up at a meeting last week, where Fianna Fáil’s Marc MacSharry was picked to sit on the committee instead of Susan O’Keeffe.
