Deputy Dukes: My dealings with CIE were at the level of the chairman, the chief executive and some very senior people, and in so far as they dealt with a forward look at investment I found that there was a good level of comprehension of what our objectives would be.
Deputy Dukes: Yes, Bus Éireann and Iarnród Éireann were in a situation where as part of the investment programme for CIE they were to contribute a certain amount to the investment programme by internal savings, particularly on the staffing side.
Deputy Dukes: It seems odd that that would have been the case and it seems odd also that, at that stage, CIE had given no information to the Department about what it was undertaking, particularly since it was going to need a statutory action of some kind to bring it to a conclusion.

  (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Alan Dukes had done so earlier as Fine Gael leader after the 1989 general election.
Alan had propped up the minority Fianna Fáil government with the Tallaght Strategy over the past two years, so the 1989 general election was not only a kind of referendum on the government's policy but also on the strategy of Dukes.
Dukes merely agreed that Haughey should do the same thing in 1989, but he was upstaged by Dick Spring, who insisted that Haughey had to resign as Taoiseach, even though he would still continue as acting Taoiseach under the constitution.

Most recently in the news: In February, Mr Dukes accused the Progressive Democrats (PDS) of hypocrisy for sharing power with Fianna Fáil yet warned their coalition partners were not fit to govern in a single-party administration.
Mr Dukes said: "After five years of cosy cohabitation the PDs have suddenly discovered their partner is a shifty profligate, not a party to be trusted on its own.
They should either be loyal to their partners in Government or else have the honesty to tell the public why Fianna Fáil cannot be trusted".
