Cut To Pandemic Unemployment Payment Still On The Table

The government hasn’t ruled out a cut to the pandemic unemployment payment.

The current 350 euro payment is due to expire on August 10th.

However, Ministers have said they don't want a cliff edge situation for people where it ceases to exist.

But Public Expenditure Minister Michael McGrath wouldn't say whether or not the rate may be lowered.
