Junior Finance Minister Brian Hayes has accused businessman Declan Ganley of joining Sinn Féin in trying to mislead the public on the contents of the EU fiscal treaty.
“Those opposing the Treaty are continuing to resort to misinformation," Minister Hayes said.
"Declan Ganley is making entirely false comments regarding corporation tax and the Treaty.
Minister Hayes said the treaty "will have no impact whatsoever on our corporation tax rate".
" In fact, the word ‘tax’ doesn’t even appear in the treaty document," he said.
“A Yes vote to the Stability Treaty will have a significant positive impact on our ability to attract Foreign Direct Investment in the future.
"A Yes vote will help bring about certainty, giving job creating investors the confidence they need.
“Sinn Féin’s credibility on the Treaty has already been undermined, as they continue to misrepresent its contents and its implications for Ireland. Now, we see Declan Ganley is resorting to the same tactics.”
