Senators in a spin at latest rejig of roles

SENATORS are demanding an urgent clarification from the Government on the responsibilities of the newly promoted junior ministers.

Sweeping changes to the ministerial ranks have caused confusion among politicians seeking to contact departments with queries.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Tanaiste Joan Burton created several new Minister of State roles in their reshuffle with departmental crossover in most positions.

Some of the new ministers have roles across two departments with special responsibility in one area.
