If I remember correctly, the government changed the law after the McKenna judgement found that they hadn't given a balanced presentation of the arguments for and against.
I think their logic was that since they were promoting the referendum they couldn't be seen to come up with arguments against it.
As usual they confuse their obligations to themselves with their obligations to the citizens.
