IBEC slam climate bill

EMPLOYERS group IBEC has called for the Climate Change Bill to be deferred and said that it is "deeply concerned" about the "serious negative economic consequences" of the bill.

IBEC said that the legislation, as currently proposed, would cost households and businesses at least €400m extra per annum by 2020. The group believes that this measure will cost jobs, raise energy prices and stifle recovery.
