I wonder what the solution there is, maybe reduce the cash payment each week, substituting it for credits or vouchers that are unique to the individual, for paying for electricity, gas, groceries etc? I see that Stephen Donnelly is trying to push ahead, so unfortunitely, it's a problem that we'll soon have to deal with. There was a recent news article (think it may have been the Irish Examiner) which quoted the price of both a bottle of Bombay Sapphire, and a ( 12 pack? ) of Bulmers,birth sides of the border. Both were almost half of the price, and that's before the new pricing kicks in. The article also made reference to the risk for jobs in the boarder counties, where staff in of licences, pubs, and related business, would be particularly at risk. Common sense, and in counties that already struggle to create employment, but clearly not a concern for Government.
