Donegal Deputy doesn’t rule out no confidence motion in Ceann Comhairle

Padraig MacLochlainnSinn Féin's Justice Spokesperson says there could be a motion of no confidence in the Dáil's Ceann Comhairle.

It's emerged that former Justice Minister Alan Shatter wrote to Ceann Comhairle Sean Barrett trying to prevent a Commission of Investigation from looking into his handling of alleged Garda malpractice.

A two-day debate on the establishment of an inquiry into the findings of the Guerin report was called off after the legal complaints from Alan Shatter.

The Ceann Comhairle has defended his decision.

But Sinn Féin's Padraig MacLochlainn says unless Sean Barrett reviews his decision - he could face a vote of no confidence.
