Today at the Flood Tribunal

Oliver Barry, Century Radio co-founder, today said that he could not recollect telling his business partner, James Stafford, that there was a ‘price list’ in operation for the award of radio licences. Stafford told the Tribunal last year that Barry had said that Minister for Communications Ray Burke and government press secretary P.J. Mara were operating on a licences for cash basis and there was a price list in operation referring to everything from national television licences to local radio licences. Stafford had said that he learned this several months before the company applied for a national radio licence.
