Green Party leader John Gormley has said there is no intention to reintroduce third level fees but that increasing registration fees was a matter for universities to decide.

He was speaking on RTÉ Radio following his party's endorsement of a revised Programme for Government agreed with Fianna Fail.

Mr Gormley also confirmed that corporate donations to political parties will be banned under the revised Programme.

He said that cutting public sector pay was a Budgetary matter and was not part of the new programme.

Yesterday 84% of Green Party members voted in favour of the new Programme for Government.

Mr Gormley described it as 'transformational in nature' and welcomed what he called an ‘overwhelming endorsement’ of the parliamentary party.

He said the programme would deal with the problems besetting the country, like planning corruption and political reform.
