Challenges to Ireland's Competitiveness: Discussion

Ms Linda Kane:

I apologise but I do not have the figures to hand. We had a chart in last year's report, Ireland's Competitiveness Challenge 2020, which highlighted that we were the most expensive jurisdiction in the OECD, and I can make those figures available to the Senator. It is very important that we get in place those schemes which make childcare more affordable to lower income and middle income families, so it makes going to work worthwhile.
