Advisory group on tax and welfare: self-employed

The Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, informed the Gerry Buttimer (FG, Cork SC) that her Advisory Group on Tax and Social Welfare had submitted to her in May 2013 its report on social insurance for the self-employed, whether it was technically feasible and financially sustainable.  The report was not yet in the public domain but she did intend to publish it (Dail Eireann, Debates, 13th June 2013, 340).

 

Asked by Caoimhghin O Caolain (SF, Cavan Monaghan) about the proposals of the End Child Poverty Coalition, the Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton told him that the coalition had given its response to the report of the advisory group on child income support (Dail Eireann, Debates, 25th June 2013, 305).  She had also met with the coalition to discuss its submission and listened to its views.
