Rent caps proposal to be scrapped if Fianna Fáil won't agree

Enda Kenny has said the Government will scrap its proposal for rent caps, if Fianna Fáil doesn't agree to its proposals.

He has told a meeting of Fine Gael TDs that the proposed 4% cap on annual increases will not be adjusted.

Fianna Fáil has tabled a Dáil amendment looking to lower the annual cap to 2%.

But at the private meeting tonight Enda Kenny has refused to consider lowering the cap, and says the plan will be withdrawn unless the 4% cap is accepted.
