Briefings for Minister Catherine Martin on the spending controversy at RTÉ

These are a series of briefings prepared for Minister Catherine Martin on what to say when questioned about the ongoing expenditure controversy at RTÉ.

In them, Minister Martin was given question and answer style briefs for questions she was likely to face in the media and elsewhere.

These included responses on what to say if asked whether the RTÉ board should all be removed, if Kevin Bakhurst was the right person to lead change at the public service broadcaster, and why she didn’t act earlier when she was first alerted to governance issues at Montrose.
