People Before Profit TDs Richard Boyd Barrett, Bríd Smith, Gino Kenny and PBP member and economist Brian O’Boyle launch their pre-Budget submission ‘Recovery For All’.
Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe will deliver Budget 2019 tomorrow in the Dáil at 1pm.
Mícheál Lehane, of RTÉ, reports:
People Before Profit has proposed spending an additional €2.9 billion to build social and affordable homes next year as part of its pre-Budget submission.
The party also wants to make all public transport free, which it says would cost €580 million annually and help reduce both CO2 emissions and traffic congestion.
Under its plan the party says that €3bn could be allocated to develop a National Health Care System that would include free GP care.
The party believes the Universal Social Charge and the Local Property Tax should be scrapped.
