GREEN PARTY TD Paul Gogarty said the party would happily “go to the country” if Fianna Fáil fail to bring forward legislation on corporate donations.

Gogarty was speaking to RTÉ News, where he said that legislation was due to be published on the matter in the Autumn. However, Fianna Fáil backbencher Bobby Aylward said there was no need to change the law. He said rigorious regulations were already in place.

The Green Party received an assurance that legislation on the issue would be brought forward when they renegotiated their programme for government last year. There were suggestions that a central fund could be used to would allow companies to contribute to political parties, with money being distributed based on the size of the party.

Earlier this week Lucinda Creighton criticised Fine Gael for it’s ‘cute-hoor politics’ and taking donations from NAMA’d property developers. This was defended by Phil Hogan. When Michael Noonan was leader of the party he refused to accept corporate donations, however Enda Kenny rolled back on this when he became leader.
