Fianna Fail fuel motion defeated in the Dail

A Fianna Fáil private member's motion calling for a review of fuel prices was defeated in the Dáil last night by 86 votes to 45.

The party had put forward a proposal to reduce the price of diesel and petrol by four cent a litre.

Donegal North East Deputy Charlie McConalogue said he was dissapointed that the motion wasnt passed last night...
