'BILL IS GOVERNMENT'S FAULT'.
Labour's Joan Burton yesterday said the move was like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. She added: "The huge fees paid was negotiated and agreed by the Fianna Fail/PD Government.
"There were promises to cut legal fees, particularly at election time, but no action was taken. It is simply a matter of common sense that the tribunals should be asked to finish their work as early as possible.
"Had the Government delivered on promises to cut legal fees, the taxpayer would not be left facing this huge bill."
