Govt. Considering €175 A Year "Laptop Levy"

: 11/10/2017 - 11:23

A new laptop levy could see households paying €175 a year.

The fee is designed to fund Irish broadcasters, as fewer people own traditional TV sets.

Ireland has the highest licence fee evasion rate in Europe, costing around €40 million a year.

The proposal is being debated by the Oireachtas Communications Committee, whose membership includes Kildare North Fianna Fáil TD, James Lawless.
