The Independent claims that the Government is sitting on a critical report from the Chair of the Fiscal Treaty RefCom about publishing its own materials in parallel to the Commission.
'The Government was warned by High Court judge Kevin Feeney that its controversial information booklets – delivered along with the independent referendum watchdog's literature – had caused confusion among voters during the previous referendum, on the EU Fiscal Treaty.
In its report on that vote held last May, the Referendum Commission, headed by Mr Justice Feeney, said its research after the event found the dual campaigns caused problems.
The critical comments on the Government's information campaign are contained in the conclusions of the report provided to the Department of the Environment in August. But the report has yet to be released.'

The headine contains an error because the story is about the Fiscal Treaty booklet and related material issued at public expense by the Government rather than the latest referendum.
There was no legal action on that occasion. Perhaps the Government thought they were out the gap for good.
