The Taoiseach has refused to guarantee the Dáil will return next week, amid continuing speculation over the possible dates for the general election.
Leo Varadkar is due to meet Michael Martin tonight to discuss the timing of the vote.
The Taoiseach says he currently expects TDs to return to work next week - but suggested that could change.

Speaking after a Cabinet meeting in north Dublin, he said: "The Cabinet is due to meet on Tuesday, the Dáil will be reconvened on Wednesday - that is the position until such a time as that may change.
"We'll have to see what happens over the next couple of days."
Mr Varadkar added: "We'll have to see how the meeting goes tonight... then I'll be having discussions with my own party, with independents who support the Government, and of course the other parties too."
He said he can only see the Government continuing until April or May if they're able to continue their work over the next few months rather than being 'wound down'.
That would mean Fianna Fáil continuing with their confidence and supply arrangement of abstaining in key Dáil votes.
