Executive Summary
The principles underpinning our budget proposals are:
 
Education, Disability and Mental Health services must be ring fenced fromany cuts in expenditure. We will reverse the cuts to home help supporthours.
 
Job creation and retention must be supported by not adding to the burdenof costs for business.
 
Those with higher incomes and wealth should bear a greater proportion of the burden of adjustment.
 
The tax base should be broadened in a way that promotes the long termhealth interests of society.
 
More demanding targets for reductions in the public sector pay bill arerequired with a strict deadline for their achievement.
 
Greater investment is needed in Exchequer capital projects than proposedby government.
 
A change in the definition of principal private residence is required to helpstruggling individuals and families who need to move home.
 
A residential property tax at this time would be both socially andeconomically unfair.
 
To help first time buyers we will extend on a restricted basis mortgageinterest relief for a further 12 months.
 
To support high skilled quality jobs in the domestic economy andencourage home insulation, we propose reversing the cuts in home energygrants announced last year.
