The Budget had been expected to be a package worth €2.8bn, but it is understood that the increase in carbon tax and changes to other taxes, such as the dividend withholding tax, could push it closer to €3bn.
Minister Donohoe concluded his discussions last night with a Fianna Fáil delegation, following talks with the Independent Alliance on its key concerns.
It is understood that some of both parties’ key budgetary demands were met.
An expansion in the medical card scheme for the over 70s and other health and social welfare spending increases are expected.
