The German Green Party MEP's and the Christian Democrat MEP's, both members of the European People's Party along with Fine Gael, want to "harmonise" the corporatin tax levels/rates across Europe. Or more correctly want Ireland to increase our CT above a certain level (unspecified) because it's "not fair" and that "Ireland has the lowest CT rate in Europe (EU)". There are two other EU countries with lower CT than Ireland, Bulgaria and Cyprus at 10% CT each.
According to the Green Party MEP on Newstalk, they have been talking with Fine Gael about the raising of Irish CT rates in line wth EU rates and have not been getting negative responses from the FG MEP's.
This gives the impression that Fine Gael are interested in raising our CT rates as well.
How is that going to effect their gaining votes in an election?
It was the Christian Democrat MEP who was speaking on Newstalk.
