The COVID-19 pandemic unemployment payment is to be extended for a number of months, according to the Taoiseach.

Cabinet Ministers are set to approve the extension tomorrow.

Leo Varadkar has assured that no one who was working full time before the pandemic hit will have their payment cut.

It means that they will still receive €350 a week beyond June 8th.

However, part-time workers are going to have their payment reduced by the government.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said, "some people who were working part-time will see their payment reduced, but their weekly payment will still be more than what they were earning on a weekly basis before the pandemic".
