Government to revise growth forecasts

Finance Minister Michael Noonan has conceded that growth in 2012 has turned out a bit weaker than forecast.

Speaking on the finance group of estimates, he said the 2012 budget had been based on a forecast of 1.3 per cent growth in gross domestic product.

"Since then, however, the indications are that growth will be a bit weaker, and most analysts have been revising downwards their forecasts over the past few months."
