Varadkar To Outline Policy Priorities

Leo Varadkar will outline his policy priorities later today, 24 hours after his rival Simon Coveney did so.

All eyes will be on what the social protection minister promises on the Universal Social Charge – Simon Coveney said yesterday we can’t afford to scrap it as planned.

Leo Varadkar says personal taxes are too high.


Simon Coveney agrees, but says scrapping the USC as planned isn’t affordable.
