Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
To clarify what we will next see by way of projections, some ongoing work is being done by the Department and the ESRI but is the Minister saying that it will be April before we see the next set of forecasts, which will be more detailed? That would be in the stability programme update, which is normally made available to us in draft form around mid-April. Of course, 29 March will have passed by that stage and to some extent, we might know where we stand. Can the Minister clarify what we will see next on the economic side by way of forecasting and projections? When will we see this?
