FF to discuss Cowen's communications strategy

A special meeting of the Fianna Fáil Parliamentary Party to discuss the Taoiseach's communications strategy is to be held, it was revealed today.

Dublin South TD Tom Kitt, who called for such a meeting, says it was agreed to when Fianna Fáil TDs and Senators met in Leinster House this afternoon.

It is understood it will be the only topic on the agenda at the next Parliamentary Party meeting.

Mr Kitt recently raised the issue of the Taoiseach's leadership, but said today that unless a Minister puts his or her name forward, he wishes to move on from that "at this stage".

"My assessment is that there will be no change in leadership unless some Minister puts their name forward," said Mr Kitt.

"To a certain extent, that's clarified at this stage."
