State visits . . . Drama . . . Collins . . . United Europe

I have never heard anything so blatantly ridiculous as Mary Hanafin's mother accompanying her on state trips.

The €20,000 involved should be paid back to the taxpayer and the minister should be called upon in the Dail to do so.

It is bad enough a spouse accompanying a government official on a state visit, but bringing a parent is ludicrous.
