The current emergency ban on rent increases and evictions will only be extended for a few weeks and more than likely not beyond August, it has emerged.

The Government plans to introduce new legislation with a suite of measures to protect renters - but plans by Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien to extend the ban implemented as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic until October have been blocked by the Attorney General, Paul Gallagher.
