The IT reports that FG's Mary Mitchell O’Connor has said that the property tax is “outrageous”. Olivia Mitchell has also said she has had a huge number of representations from homeowners on the issue.
"Ms Mitchell O’Connor said the way the tax was being designed was unfair and “outrageous” and she would continue to lobby Mr Noonan."
"Mary Mitchell O’Connor from Dun Laoghaire and Olivia Mitchell from Dublin South said they had a huge number of representations from homeowners who had ordinary properties, were in negative equity, but would still face steep property taxes."
Feeling the heat? Wonder if FG will lose a few more backbenchers, on the plinth, after the budget or is this all just hot air?
