Clare TD Michael McNamara has been readmitted to the Parliamentary Labour Party.
“I will be informing Labour TDs and Senators of this development at the next meeting of the Parliamentary Party,” Deputy Emmet Stagg said in marking the formal announcement.
Deputy McNamara said, “Labour has a huge amount of work to do in the coming months, and in the run-up to the election and I want to play a full part in that work. I will be making it my priority to seek to reform Dáil procedures to ensure that it reflects the priorities of those who vote at elections.
“I am proud of the record of this Government and, in particular, I am proud of the role that Labour has played in this. This government, with Labour at its heart, has turned the economy around. We are now creating 1,300 jobs a week, and we have created fiscal space of some €1.5b for Budget 2016.
