Watch it in full here. / YouTube

THE DUST HAS settled on Budget 2018 and the fine print is now being examined.

We put the questions that you, our readers, had about it to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe, live on Facebook.

“The most important thing that we want to do in this Budget is be prudent,” the Taoiseach said in his opening statement.

“To safeguard the future for our country, to enable families and business and people to plan for the future, and that’s why we decided that we would balance the books for the first time in ten years.”

Watch the full show above, broadcast live from Facebook Ireland’s headquarters in Grand Canal Dock.
