Eamon Ryan says government has ‘lost confidence’ in Phil Hogan as EU Commission considers his fate

Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said the government has lost confidence in Phil Hogan after the Commissioner clearly breached guidelines, as well as “the lack of immediate transparency and explanation and immediate apology”.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen had called for a “detailed report” on the matter, and more questions are expected to be asked at the Commission’s daily press conference later this morning.

Hogan has insisted he “acted in good faith” when travelling in Ireland in recent weeks, but questions remain over his movements.

The government and a majority of Cabinet has denounced Hogan’s actions, urging him to “consider his position.”
