Alan Shatter the Justice Minister is to face a vote of no confidence in the Dail. Fianna Fail had accused the Fine Gael politician of having betrayed his ministerial seal of office.

Minister Shatter is under further pressure over suggestions that a Garda report into a driving incident involving him a number of years ago had gone missing. The minister insists that no actual report was ever made.

Given the substantial government majority in the Dail the motion of no confidence is most unlikely to succeed.
