Noonan: No sign of FF pulling plug on Government over Budget

The Finance Minister Michael Noonan has said he does not believe the Government is in any trouble over next month's Budget.

He said there was no sign of Fianna Fáil preparing to pull the plug on the Government in the run-up to the Budget in 15 days' time.

The minister was asked whether he thought there was any risk of Micheál Martin turning up at his doorstep the night before the Budget to say it would not pass.

He said: "There's no sign of that there, but you better ask Michel Martin that…I don't think he knows where I live, so he'd have difficulty knocking on the door."
