The government’s Strategic Communications Unit is “a propaganda unit” that needs to be abolished, according to Sligo based Fianna deputy Marc McSharry.
In the Dail yesterday the unit’s future was debated under a Sinn Fein’s Private Motion calling for its disbandment.
The motion received cross party support on the floor of the house from opposition deputies. The vote on the motion takes place tomorrow (Thursday).
However, Leo Varadkar has urged the Dail to await the outcome of a review of the Strategic Communications Unit.
Deputy McSharry has been telling Midwest Radio News today why he believes the unit should be disbanded and the 5 million euro per year cost of it, redirected to investment in western counties.
