Committee on Budgetary Oversight

Fiscal Assessment Report: Irish Fiscal Advisory Council

Mr. Sebastian Barnes:

It is ultimately a social choice. If one looks across countries, some spend very little public money, some spend a lot and some get better value for money within that. It is a choice, and that is the point that we are making. One makes one's choice and then it should be budgeted accordingly. We do not have a view as to whether the current spending is out of line with anything.
