Time to start a Budget 2020 thread I think, with some talk this week, esp. around Brexit planning
October’s Budget will involve a package worth €2.8 billion, Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe said as he published the Government’s Summer Economic Statement today.
However, €2.1 billion of that is already pre-committed to current and capital spending plans, which leaves just €700m to be allocated on budget day on October 8.
This is three weeks before Britain is due to leave the European Union.
