Fianna Fáil TDs are due to be briefed today about the details of the Government's planned NAMA legislation and the level of debt in the Irish property sector.

The briefing will be given by Finance Minister Brian Lenihan on the second day of the party's think-in in Athlone.

The Dáil is due to begin debating the NAMA legislation tomorrow.

The scale of the risk being taken on by the taxpayer should become clearer then, with Mr Lenihan expected to reveal the amount of money the Government plans to pay for bad loans issued by Irish banks.

Meanwhile, delegates at the think-in will also hear arguments today in favour of a 'yes' vote in the re-run of the Lisbon Treaty referendum.

Blair Horan of the Civil and Public Service Union and Paul Rellis of Microsoft Ireland are both due to give presentations in support of the treaty.
