Healy Rae to consider bringing B&B owners into rates net.

Independent TD Jackie Healy Rae says he’s willing to consider bringing bed and breakfast owners into the rates net. The South Kerry Deputy blocked plans by Minister Noel Dempsey during the last government to extend the revenue base. He was responding to a call from guesthouse owner Dermot O`Carroll who wants everybody in the hospitality sector to pay something. Deputy Healy Rae says he’s happy to look at such a proposal.
