Statement on FF FG framework document
Commenting on the Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael framework document, Labour Party Leader, Alan Kelly TD, said:
“I have received the Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael document that they plan to use to negotiate a programme for Government with other parties.
“It is clear from first reading that this is an un-costed, purely aspirational document, that will require detailed scrutiny. It fails to mention any concrete timelines or when any of the mooted ideas would be delivered.
“I welcome that in both parties coming together to draft this document, that they have come around to a different way of thinking on a new social contract and other social democratic policies.
“The Labour Parliamentary Party will appraise this document over the coming days.”
