The Government's controversial vote on The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement has been postponed until the new year.

The free-trade agreement between Canada and the European Union was due to be ratified in the Dáil after a 55-minute debate today. However the vote will now not go ahead until January as concerns have been flagged by Green TDs as well as the majority of the opposition.

For more we’re joined by Eamon Ryan Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment; and Transport, Tourism and Green Party Leader.
