Ireland's Budget as revealed to the German Parliament
The full document containing details of Ireland's Budget for 2012 which were leaked by the Gernamn Parliament may now be read here. These documents were provided by the Irish Government to the EU Commission on a confidential basis. Of particular interest is the Memorandum of Economic and Financial Policies contained in this document.
These documents were supplied to the EU Commission for consideration by senior Finance Ministry officials of the EU's Euro Group Working Group and Economic and Financial Committee in preparation for EU Finance Ministers' decision on the next disbursement of Bailout funds to Ireland. Because they were leaked in advance of Ireland’s Budget being announced, they are now been laid before the Houses of the Oireachtas in draft form
