Government sources have indicated they don’t expect any changes to the planned cuts of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP).
Taoiseach Micheál Martin said last week there is no plans to roll back the planned cuts.
The Cabinet Sub Committee on Economic Recovery will meet this evening to discuss supports for the hospitality sector as restrictions were reimposed.
Ministers are also set to consider long term supports.
The cuts to the PUP came into effect last week, while new restrictions were imposed on hospitality settings – all premises must now close by midnight.
