Written answers (Question to Finance)

I will present Budget 2020 to Dáil Éireann on the 8th of October and, as agreed by Government, this will be based on the assumption - purely for budgetary purposes - of a disorderly exit of the UK from the European Union. 

I have outlined on several occasions that, irrespective of the actual Brexit outcome, there will be no additional Budget for next year.  This position has not changed.
