Sinn Fein courts Fine Fail to support Household Charge motion

Sinn Féin Councillor Jack Murray has said that he believes there’s a possibility that his emergency motion on the Household Charge will be passed by the council this week.

The motion calls for the council not to collect information from utility companies in order to pursue those who haven’t paid the household charge will.

Councillor Murray says that it will depend on whether or not he can get support from Fianna Fáila s the whetger the motion is passed.

Councillor Murray claims that at the last sitting of Donegal County Council, Fine Gael were facilitated by their Mayor to 'filibuster' throughout the meeting in order to block his motion from being discussed.

The Councilllor says that two independent councillors have already confirmed that they will support him but the support of Fianna Fáil is needed for the motion to succeed.
