The government continues to face pressure over its decision to end the eviction ban at the end of this month.
Sinn Féin is bringing a motion calling for the ban to be extended until January of next year and says Ireland 'remains in the midst of a housing emergency'.
A counter-motion will be finalised by cabinet ministers this morning after coalition party leaders met last night.
Further details measures to assist the rental sector and help to prevent homelessness have yet to be finalised.
the Sinn Féin motion also says that by choosing to end the eviction ban on the 31st of March, the government has “increased the stress and insecurity experienced by the 750,000 people, including working families, living in private rented accommodation”.
