The Communications Minister says he acted to the letter of the law when it came to the proposed takeover of the Celtic Media Group by INM.

Denis Naughten confirmed he had a conversation with someone representing INM about referring the matter to the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, before he made it public knowledge that that's what he would do.

However the Minister says he didn't express a definitive view during that phone call and a referral to the BAI was just one of a range of options.

Speaking in the Dail Minister Denis Naughten denied he passed insider information to Independent News and Media, contrary to suggestions in a court affidavit filed by the state's corporate watchdog.
