Budget 2013 to be revealed this afternoon
The Budget will contain revenue raising measures amounting to €1.25bn, and cuts in spending amounting to €2.25bn.
It is the second budget of the Fine Gael-Labour coalition and the fifth austerity budget in a row.
Mr Noonan will begin at 2.30pm and his speech, expected to last around 45 minutes, will focus on revenue raising measures.
It will be followed by a similar contribution from Labour’s Brendan Howlin who will outline spending cuts.
Throughout the afternoon there will be briefing sessions at which individual ministers will outline the implications for their departments.
The first vote is due just after tea time.
