DUBLIN Nov 29 The memorandum of understanding
setting out the targets Ireland must meet under its 85 billion
euro emergency loan package is expected to be published on Dec.
6 or 7, an Irish finance ministry spokesman said on Monday.
The package agreed with the IMF and European Union on Sunday
is designed to recapitalise the country's banks as well as fund
its large government deficit and the memorandum will set a
timetable of quarterly targets that must be met.
Ireland intends to address the deficit sharply by announcing
spending cuts and tax hikes totalling 6 billion euros for next
year's budget on Dec.7, potentially the same day the memorandum
will be published.
