Sinn Féin is to seek legal advice on whether the Government’s information campaign on the Fiscal Treaty Referendum is in breach of the McKenna judgement. That judgement, delivered in 1995, said the Government is not allowed to use public funds to advocate one side in a referendum campaign. The Government has already set up a website – Stabilitytreaty.ie – and has approved a booklet for delivery to every home in the country over the next week.
