Magic Numbers

Quote:[[The value of the telephone allowance in 2012 was €270 per annum]]

Quote:[[ over the past two Budgets, the maximum weekly rate for State Pensions has increased by €8 per week, along with pro-rata increases for Increases for Qualified Adults. The value of these increases is well in excess of the value of the telephone allowance previously provided]]

From the above the telephone allowance would be €5.20 approx. or €540 over two years.
Pension increase was 14 months @ €3.00 + 10 months @ €5.00 amounting to about €400 for years 2016/17.

Isn't it amazing how a set of figures can be presented to create an entirely different view?
