The spiralling cost of energy will be top of the agenda when the Cabinet meets today.

Yesterday the Taoiseach promised a significant package of measures to deal with the rising cost of living.

The Budget for 2023 will be published on September 27th with a wide range of proposals expected to address the crisis.

Political Correspondent with the Irish Daily Mail, Craig Hughes, says a memo brought to Cabinet will address excessive use of energy in public buildings.

"Sources are telling me that they expect the memo to bring us in line with France and Germany, but it remains to be seen how close we get to them.

"In Germany, for example, public buildings are only able to dispense cold water, so it remains to be seen whether it goes to that level or not.

"The nuts and bolts of the memo were being thrashed out last night, and we expect it to be thrashed out by cabinet."
