ENERGY MINISTER PAT Rabbitte said today that Budget 2012, due at the beginning of December, is to be an “extremely painful” one.

He warned that there was little left in terms of “low-hanging fruit” for the Government to cut in order to achieve the €3.6bn in savings it needs to fulfill its debt reduction.
