WATCH: Simon Coveney and Katherine Zappone answer your questions about Budget 2017

TheJournal.ie asked your questions about housing and children live on Facebook this evening.

Posted by on Tuesday, 1 December 2020

TWO SENIOR GOVERNMENT ministers answer questions from TheJournal.ie readers about two of the most-discussed areas of Budget 2017 – housing and children.

Live from Facebook headquarters in Dublin’s docklands, our political reporter Christina Finn spoke to Housing Minister Simon Coveney and Minister for Children Katherine Zappone the questions that you have put to them over the past 24 hours.

There was a huge volume of questions sent in by readers covering a wide range of issues, including the new help-to-buy scheme for first-time buyers and the major new childcare scheme due to launch in September 2017.

Unfortunately we didn’t have time to get to all your questions on Facebook, but we will be forwarding some of your comments on to the minsters’ office tomorrow.
