Finance Bill 'crucial'

A SPOKESMAN for Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn said that the Irish Finance Bill was "crucial" to Ireland fulfilling its commitment under the EU-IMF bailout deal.

Amadeu Altafaj, spokesman for Olli Rehn said that he was "confident that a large consensus" among Ireland's parties would hold to enable the bill to become law before voters are asked to pass judgment.
