Committee on Budgetary Oversight

Pre-Budget 2022 Scrutiny: Irish Fiscal Advisory Council

Mr. Sebastian Barnes:

The important thing is that the Government needs to make a choice. It is the elected Government, obviously, and it can decide which of those things is the most important. Looking at the discussion and the needs of the country, however, especially in areas such as housing and combating climate change, for example, which means investment is definitely a high priority in those areas, that raises a major question concerning the relevance of tax cuts in this current context.
