Green Party chairman Dan Boyle has ruled out a cut in the State pension saying the Green Party would not support such a proposal.
It is feared that an across-the-board cut to the contributory and non-contributory pensions was on the cards as the Government seeks further savings.
However, in a twitter post this morning, Senator Boyle said talk of a pension cut was getting out of hand.
“I’m not expecting such a proposal and if made The Green Party would not support it,” the Senator tweeted.
