James Lawless was on Radio 1’s Today With Miriam discussing the National Broadband Plan

James said the government have managed to drive it 6 times over budget, 3 times over due, to 1/3 less houses and still plan at the end to give it all away to a private company.

James commented, “Yesterday’s report by the Communications Committee, of which I am vice chair, raises really serious concerns about the tender process and follows a majority Dáil vote, Department of Public Expenditure and the Public Accounts Committee in finding that this tender is way over price and over spec and risks wasting billions of taxpayers money to achieve what could be done much faster and cheaper.”
