FG plans DÃ¡il motion over cafÃ© bar licences

Fine Gael is planning to expose possible divisions in the Government later this week by moving a DÃ¡il motion calling for the scrapping of plans to introduce cafÃ© bar licences.
The Private Members’ motion will be debated in the DÃ¡il on Tuesday and Wednesday before it is voted upon.
The Minister for Justice, Michael McDowell, is due to address the Fianna FÃ¡il parliamentary party on the proposals on Tuesday.
40 members of Fianna FÃ¡il are reported to have signed a petition calling for the plan to be dropped.
Fine Gael has called on Government TDs who are unhappy about it to support their motion.
I think it is good that this bill is being brought forward, the only pity is that the research commissioned by the Department of Justice calling for cafe bars has been sitting in Stephens Green for two years now. The petition is just typical of this administration.
