Reprieve for government as Finance Bill scrapes through

The government bags a crucial victory on the Finance Bill after independents offer support in exchange for big amendments.

THE CRUCIAL VOTE on the Second Stage of the Finance Bill is due in the Dáil in the coming minutes… but it looks like the government has been handed a last-minute reprieve after Michael Lowry released a statement indicating that the government had offered concessions on tax-deductible student registration fees, and to rush through an amendment levying a 90 per cent tax on bankers’ bonuses.

Independents could kill Finance Bill over banker tax

Lowry, McGrath and Healy-Rae want the 90% tax to be included in the Finance Bill – in a race against time for FF.
