Committee on Budgetary Oversight

Fiscal Assessment Report: Irish Fiscal Advisory Council

Mr. Seamus Coffey:

The changes should be made in a transparent and upfront manner. If as a consequence of allocating additional resources to health there are fewer resources for areas such as education, these are the issues that we should be considering. We have calling for better budgetary management. The relative allocations between the areas is a matter for the political process but we believe it should be done in a transparent fashion.
