Further to the voting down of a Dáil motion on Wednesday night calling for a ringfenced insolvency fund to be established which would facilitate all payments due to workers (including recently laid off Debenhams staff) if a company goes bust…by just three votes.

Our Fianna Fáil/Fine Gael/Greens government voted 24-21 AGAINST a motion that would see Debenhams workers getting their redundancy that is owed to them. Above is a list of the TDs that voted against the motion.
Ciara G adds:
Fianna Fáil are performative, they do not care. Fianna Fáil TD Padriag O’Sullivan (above) stood on the picket line only to vote against workers in the Dáil. Taoiseach Micheál Martin came to the picket line in Cork over a month ago for a photo op and has done nothing to help since.
