Coalition parties differ wildly on policies on deleting of texts
The Irish Independent asked the spokespersons for every senior Cabinet minister whether they wiped texts.
Major differences have emerged in how Government ministers treat the deletion of text messages, with apparent splits along party lines.
It comes in the wake of the controversy surrounding the Foreign Minister Simon Coveney deleting texts relating to the botched appointment of Katherine Zappone as a UN envoy.
Whether ministers delete messages varies by party, with Green ministers all explicitly stating they do not delete texts or emails.
