Noonan's Christmas gift will be welcomed by pensioners
FINANCE Minister Michael Noonan has ensured that pensioners with savings, property investments and shares will have a good Christmas.
The confirmation that PRSI (Pay-related Social Insurance) will not apply to income from these assets for the over-66s will be good news.
Loath is a cabinet minister to do anything to upset the grey power base. After all, many of the people with savings and shares are core Fine Gael voters.
