Two of the three Independent TDs on whose support the Government relies today said they would withdraw their backing.
Independent TD for Kerry South Jackie Healy-Rae said recent events "have totally undermined whatever little bit of confidence” he had in the Government. (...)
North Tipperary TD Michael Lowry told RTÉ radio this afternoon it was "highly unlikely" that he would support the upcoming budget.
The Fianna Fáil/Green Party Coalition had a working majority of three until the decision by Mr Lowry and Mr Healy-Rae. With the support of Minister for Health Mary Harney and the two Independent TDs it would have command the support of 82 TDs, with 79 Opposition votes.
