Statement by Minister on the death of journalist, Jim Dougal15 October 2010
It with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of Jim Dougal. Jim was a gifted journalist with great political insight, and one who conducted himself with complete professionalism throughout his long career. These talents also served him well in his public service career and he excelled during his years with the European Commission. I want to express my sincere condolences to his wife and family at this time.
