Dáil suspended over banking inquiry row

The Dáil was briefly suspended for a short time within the last hour in a dispute over the banking inquiry.

A row erupted after it emerged that the first meeting of the inquiry has been delayed in a row over the membership.

Enda Kenny told the Dáil that the terms of reference for the investigation could not be agreed until there was a government majority on the committee.

However, Fianna Fáil's Micheál Martin demanded to know why the government was trying to remove Fianna Fáil senator Marc MacSharry from the inquiry and replace him with Labour's Susan O'Keeffe.
