“I met with John Curran and asked him to write to all Government Ministers to ascertain what foreign trips were taking place this session. I told him that anything to do with a trade mission will be looked at on an individual basis and if they are important enough, a pair will be granted.”
The above is a quote from Fine Gael Chief Whip Paul Kehoe in a piece by Harry McGee for today’s Irish Times print edition (John Curran is the Government Chief Whip.) Kehoe’s approach is just sound common sense, so often strangely lacking in politics these days.
