Gilmore: Irish Water issue will not break up the Government

The Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore has dismissed speculation that the Labour Party are going to walk from Government over Irish Water.

It was reported that the junior coalition partners were going to pull the plug over ongoing rows on the installation of meters and free allowances.

“The reality is for many households an additional bill, practically for people on low incomes, is going to be very difficult”, said Gilmore.

“I am thinking about pensioners and people on low fixed incomes. We have to get a resolution on them and I believe we will.”
