Local TD claims he hasn’t been asked yet to become Dail Committee Chairman

John Paul Phelan says he’s not been asked to be chairman of any Dáil committee.

He has been made a member of the new Dáil budgetary committee but he’s playing down rumours that he’ll be made chairman.

The 15-member panel will examine key decisions on next October’s budget and they’ll have the power to change it.

Deputy Phelan told KCLR he personally hasn’t heard anything about becoming chairman.
