Demands for a €400 tax credit for renters and a €15 increase on welfare rates were the main bones of contention as Coalition leaders sought to agree the final details of the Budget.

Fianna Fáil is pushing for the €400 tax credit for renters while Fine Gael is campaigning for welfare rates to be increased by €15 per week.
