Response from RTE concerning comments by Joe Costello TD
Tuesday, May 01, 2012
“RTE have received correspondence from Minister of State Joe Costello about his remarks on the Week in Politics programme. He says that he did not intend to refer to a specific category of planners as he did not know that such a professional category as ‘Senior Planner’ existed. He says he was referring to planners in much the same way as people refer to politicians and that no offence was intended to any professional category.
I hope that this response will bring to a conclusion the concerns expressed by the Irish Planners Institute.”
