Irish Won’t Put EU Pact Terms in Constitution, Sunday Times Says

April 01, 2012

Ireland plans to implement the terms of the European Union fiscal pact via laws on financial responsibility rather than the nation’s constitution, the Sunday Times said, citing European Affairs Minister Lucinda Creighton.

The move will make it easier to reverse the rules in the future, the newspaper said. The wording of the referendum on May 31 has been finalized and is “just an enabling clause allowing the government to bring the treaty into effect,” Creighton said, according to the newspaper.
