Press release

In a statement yesterday evening, the One House group, which is campaigning for a Yes vote in the referendum, has called on RTÉ to ensure that all civil society voices are treated equally in tonight’s Prime Time debate program.

One House consider RTÉ’s decision to give preferential treatment to one civil society group over another to be a grave editorial error by RTÉ management.

One House said it had been treated fairly and equally on all RTÉ programmes and on other broadcast stations throughout the referendum campaign. This decision, with only a number of days to polling, is disappointing and deeply flawed.

One House believes that RTÉ is in breach of the Broadcasting Act 2009 and the referenda guidelines of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
