Letters to the Editor

It's very heartening to note how much better off we will all be when measures outlined in the recent Budget come into effect.

However, Mr Nash's contention that hundreds of thousands of private-sector workers and pensioners will be better off as a result of the scrapping of the Government Pensions Levy by the Minister for Finance is far from the truth.
