Seanad: Business of Seanad (2 Feb 2016)

Mary White: I got a call from Mr. Adrian McLaughlin in the Minister of State's office. He told me that the Minister of State, Deputy English, would not be able to take my Commencement Matter and had two of his own. I am putting exactly what happened on the record.

Seanad: Joint Committee of Inquiry into the Banking Crisis: Statements (2 Feb 2016)

Mary White: I support the Minister of State's comments. The members of the inquiry were exhausted by the sheer volume of work. There was a tremendous effort on the part of the committee and the significance of this undertaking cannot be underestimated.
