Micheál Martin (Leader of the Opposition; Cork South Central, Fianna Fail)
It has been nine months since the commitment was made to consult the leaders of the Opposition and there has been no consultation whatsoever. Is it the Taoiseach's intention to just brief Members about what has been decided or will there be a genuine offer to the leaders of the Opposition parties to have some input into the terms of reference and the matters that would come under consideration by the convention? Will there be genuine consultation at that level?
