Finance Bill 2012 (Certified Money Bill): Committee and Remaining Stages
David Cullinane (Sinn Fein)
I am being constructive. I am stating I do not agree with the 2% VAT increase but I am also pointing out where money can be got. I am not using my own calculations to state how much would be generated; the Department of Finance came up with the figures. The Minister has any amount of advisers and they are the people who gave us the figures. They costed our pre-budget proposals.
