Taoiseach says ‘Spring Statement’ will allow Government set out where we want Ireland to be in years to come

The Taoiseach says today’s Spring Statement will allow the Government set out ‘where we want’ Ireland to be in the year’s ahead.

The Ministers for Finance and Public Expenditure will be hoping to convince voters that any recovery in recent months is down to government policy and the sacrifices of the Irish people.

Around 3 billion euro of tax cuts and spending increases are being lined up by the coalition over the coming years – thanks to factors like economic growth, increases in tax revenues and falling funding costs.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny says it’s an opportunity for the government to outline its plans for the future and highlight progress that’s been made
