In his opening address to the ardfheis at the National Convention Centre, Mr Kenny also urged people who had not done so to register for the household charge by the deadline of midnight tomorrow night.
“I know that new taxes are never popular. The Household Charge is no exception. But it is needed to fund essential local services,” he said in his opening address to the Fine Gael ardfheis.
“To close the gap in our public finances, we must instead broaden the tax base to include a property based charge because this is less harmful than taxes on work and investment.”
Well, we’re certainly convinced.
