Perry ran up €100k tax bill
JUNIOR minister John Perry's position has become increasingly tenuous after it emerged he had tax arrears of €100,000, writes Fionnan Sheahan.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny yesterday gave a less than ringing endorsement to the minister and speculation has already begun about his successor as Small Business Minister. Mr Kenny said he has spoken with Mr Perry about his financial difficulties this week. The junior minister has six weeks to find a means of paying almost €2.5m in debts.
