A Kerry TD says any public inquiry into the Maurice McCabe scandal needs to be concise and deal with specific issues.

Fianna Fail’s John Brassil says all politicians have a responsibility to meet the needs of the McCabe family.

Meanwhile, another Kerry deputy is seeking support for a motion of no-confidence in the Government.

Fianna Fail’s John Brassil says any public inquiry into the Maurice McCabe controversy will have to be very specific and have a tight time frame on it.

Deputy Brassil says issues at the top level of the Gardai will have to be resolved independently to ensure public confidence in the force.

Although, he says the Government have handled the issue appallingly he doesn’t believe a General Election would be of benefit right now:

Meanwhile, Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris is calling on his fellow Kerry deputies to support a motion of no confidence in the government which is being moved in the Dail tomorrow.

Deputy Ferris says the failure of the Government to protect Sergeant Maurice McCabe means it cannot credibly remain in power and he pointed to the conflicting accounts given by the Taoiseach, Justice and Children’s ministers.

The Sinn Fein motion of no confidence says the scandal goes to the very heart of the integrity of the Government.
