Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

The Government's position on Ireland's corporation tax rate is very clear and well known to our EU colleagues.

In the context of the discussions on fiscal union, I would like to inform the Deputy that the current proposals on tax simply reflect existing arrangements and do not bring anything new, including corporation tax, to the table.
