The Reform Alliance is to hold its first conference on 25 January at the RDS, TD Billy Timmins has confirmed.

Speaking to RTÉ News, Mr Timmins said the one-day event will remain focused on three main policy areas - political, economic and health reform.

He added that the conference would not focus on any political ideology and was not intended as a step towards the launch of a political party.

The Reform Alliance was formed in September last by Oireachtas members who had been expelled from the Fine Gael parliamentary party for voting against the party whip.
