A Budget for local jobs, growth and stability – Ó’Domhnaill

Donegal South West Fianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó’Domhnaill has welcomed the wide range of pro-enterprise, pro-employment measures contained in Budget 2011.

“This is a budget for jobs, growth and stability. The package of measures we have announced reflects the Government’s determination to stimulate the jobs market. Getting people back to work remains our top priority,” said Senator Ó’Domhnaill.

“Budget 2011 includes a number of initiatives to keep those who are unemployed close to the work force. This means they will be in a position to take up jobs which arise as the economy recovers.”

“5,000 additional places will be provided in the private sector under the Skills Development and Internship Programme while the public service will get an extra 5, 000 places under the Work Placement Programme. A further 5,000 positions will be provided in community and voluntary sector under the Community Work Placement Scheme.”

“It is also extremely important that our corporation tax of 12.5% is being retained. This will help us add to the hundreds of thousands of jobs that we have managed to attract through Foreign Direct Investment.”

“By investing in local jobs and reducing our deficit, Budget 2011 will go a long way towards boosting the economy of Donegal and the entire country,” concluded Senator Ó’Domhnaill.
