The Summer Economic Statement shows that Government has the resources to protect the most vulnerable groups in Irish society while also making strategic investments in long-term infrastructure projects in areas such as social housing provision and achieving our climate targets. The figures released in the Summer Economic Statement show that Government will have at least an additional €6.7bn available for Budget 2023.  In making decisions on how to allocate these resources Government’s core guiding principle should be to protect the most vulnerable groups in our society.
