THIS WAS WHAT greeted Michael Noonan as he arrived for work at the Department of Finance this morning.
Pizza isn’t exactly what we’d be after for our breakfast if we had the choice but Apache Pizza owner Robert Pendleton wanted to doorstep Noonan and encourage him to keep the 9 per cent VAT for the tourism and hospitality sector.
The special rate is due to expire at the end of this year and the government is still to determine whether it will be extended or let run out which the tourism and hospitality industry understandably doesn’t want to happen.
How effective this publicity stunt will be only time will tell but it doesn’t look like Noonan appreciated this offer this morning.
