Fine Gael Tables Motion Of No Confidence In Defence Minister

Opposition parties will today attempt to increase pressure on the defence minister Willie O'Dea - after he denied lying on oath in the high court last year.

Speaking in the Dail last night - Minister O'Dea admitted making an untrue statement in a defamation case - but said it was a mistake which he later corrected.

Fine Gael has tabled a motion of no-confidence in the Minister.
