Independent now five cent cheaper
Your Irish Independent is five cent cheaper from this morning. This is as a result of the reduction in VAT on newspapers, announced in the Government's recent jobs initiative.
At Independent News and Media (INM) we are committed to a combination of passing on a reduction in price to our readers and directly creating jobs.
As Ireland's largest and most successful media group we take very seriously the important role we play in Irish society and recognise the need to show leadership in this exceptionally challenging economic climate.
INM supports the Government's focus on jobs and we have told Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton that we intend using the measures announced in his jobs initiative to create direct employment. This job creation programme has already commenced.
