Change To Legislation Introduced For Pandemic Unemployment Payment

People on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment must be "genuinely seeking employment" under legislation passed through the Dáil last night.

104 people had the payment cut for going on holiday abroad recently.
Opposition parties had sought to have this requirement removed from the legislation.
The Social Welfare Amendment bill puts the 350 euro emergency payment on a statutory basis.
