Poll: Which State asset should we sell off first?

The Cabinet will make some concrete decisions on the possibility of selling off State assets when it meets today – where would you like to see the axe to fall first, if at all?

THE CABINET IS meeting today on the Dáil’s first day back in session. One of the priority items on the agenda for the Cabinet is whether it will sell off one or more State assets to raise €2bn.

Last week, Transport Minister Leo Varadker indicated that the State might sell off its share in Aer Lingus. There is speculation in today’s Irish Independent that the ESB could come under the hammer.

Today we are asking you: Which major State asset do YOU think should be sold off first?


Poll Results:

They shouldn't sell any off - it's a short-sighted, short-term solution (751)
RTE (543)
Aer Lingus (439)
National Lottery (183)
ESB (161)
Bord Gáis (78)
Other (57)
Coillte (44)
