Budget will be 'less demanding'
23 Jul 2014 14:02
Minister for Public Expenditure Brendan Howlin has said the Government will have a less demanding Budget than expected for 2015 because the economy has grown.
Speaking on his way into Cabinet this morning, Mr Howlin said they would have to wait until later in the year, but he said the economy had grown better than expected.
Mr Howlin said they would not have to make the adjustment of the €2bn scale forecast to get to the deficit target of 3% or below.
They were bringing a joint memo today with the overarching approach to the Budget, he said.
