    McCreevy And Noonan On Individualisation
  • Extended description

    Minister for Finance Charlie McCreevy defends the individualisation measures in his budget on the grounds that a married couple on the average industrial wage will have an extra £40 a week take-home pay.

    Michael Noonan of Fine Gael argues that this measure is socially divisive and will see Irish society change from one based on community and family to one based on the individual.
