It was reported by the Irish Times today that Ms Siobhan O'Donoghue of Migrants Rights Centre of Ireland claimed that Fine Gael as a party were opposed to the introduction of the new Work Permit rules for migrants out of the EU. Is this correct and if so, what are the reasons for opposing it ?
MRCI director Siobhán O’Donoghue said she had asked the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment to postpone the introduction so that a review of its implications could take place.

"The MRCI has also written to all TDs asking for their support for their campaign to reverse the new measures. According to Ms O’Donoghue, Fine Gael has called on the Government to not go ahead and many Fianna Fáil backbenchers have also informally voiced their disagreement."
