Politicians attending the twice-yearly meeting of the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly in London last week were somewhat disconcerted to find that the after-meeting dinner arrangements had more than a touch of class consciousness. Organised by Tory MP Laurence Robertson, a dinner was laid on in the Michelin-starred restaurant in the Crown Plaza Hotel for the co-chairmen, Mr Robertson himself and Joe McHugh of Fine Gael, and the co-chairs of the two sub-committees involved, Jack Wall and Frankie Feighan, as well as the four men’s assistants.
The rest of the delegates were, however, sent to a different dining area where there was a set menu. The Irish Times reports that at the end of the evening apologies were offered.
