Joan Burton and Enda Kenny this morning at a jobs press conference in government buildings
Tánaiste Joan Burton has not confirmed the remarks she made earlier this week that a family of four adults would pay less than €200 a year in water charges.
Instead, she said in the Dáil her objective and that of the Government was to have a charging regime that is “affordable and where there is clarity and where there is certainty in relation to the pricing structure”.
Wait for it…
Ms Burton pointed to the fundraising dinner that party leader Gerry Adams would attend tonight in New York at $500 (€403) a head. She said that was much more than what an ordinary family would pay for water charges in a year.
