Government formation news! A ‘mid-term review at two years or three? April 22, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

From the IT this morning…

It is understood the parties have agreed in principle to a mid-term review of any agreement. Differences remain over when that should happen.
So far, Fine Gael has pushed for this to take place after three years, as has been requested by the Independent Alliance group of deputies.


Fianna Fáil would prefer two years, but the matter is expected to be settled between Mr Martin and Mr Kenny rather than the two negotiating teams. It is expected to be one of a number of issues to be decided by the two leaders.

Such optimism.

Meanwhile, isn’t this an intriguing straw in the wind:

Some Government departments will be permitted to breach their spending ceilings this year despite previous insistence by ministers that no supplementary budgets would be allowed.
