There will be no income-tax cuts or hikes for workers in next month's Budget, the Cabinet has agreed.

Yesterday, the Taoiseach and his ministers signed off on an agreement that there will be no changes to tax bands and tax credits in next month's Budget despite the rising cost of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is also understood there will be no changes to PRSI or USC.
