JOBS Minister Richard Bruton – Fine Gael’s director of elections for the Seanad referendum – says someone from his party will take part in a televised debate on the Upper House.
However, Mr Bruton didn’t say if he will be taking part, and Fine Gael says talks are still ongoing with RTE.
“I haven’t been personally asked but that is a number of days away,” Mr Bruton said while campaigning in Dublin today. “Obviously we have to wait and see what format is decided for that debate. We will debate, and indeed the ‘Yes’ side will debate, there are many strands to the ‘Yes’ side will debate.”
A Fine Gael spokesman said the party will take part in any debate, but talks were ongoing with the national broadcaster.
