TV licence inspectors could soon be out of a job.  Fine Gael are pushing for the licence fee to be scrapped in favour of a ‘public service media charge’ for all households and businesses. To debate this possible charge coming into force we were joined on the show this morning by Richard Bruton, Chairperson of the Fine Gael parliamentary party, TD for Dublin Bay North & former Minister for Communications and Ruth Coppinger, Former Solidarity TD for Dublin West.
