Dail dissolution to mark start of Irish poll campaign

John Bruton, the Irish Prime Minister, will today announce the dissolution of the Dail and the start of the general election campaign.

Leaders of the three coalition government parties, Fine Gael, Labour and Democratic Left will meet today to start their campaign with a photocall to announce 21 election commitments.

The main opposition, Fianna Fail, will announce its manifesto tomorrow morning. Its campaign will centre on tax cuts of 5 per cent over five years in the higher 48 per cent rate, with some reduction in the lower 26 per cent rate. Alan Murdoch
