A Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael-Green coalition is set to ban landlords from evicting long-term tenants without a clear reason as part of a 'new deal for renters'.

As talks on a programme for government look set to drag into the weekend, the parties were last night attempting to finalise a housing package that it is expected will include plans to introduce so-called tenancies of indefinite duration.

Many elements of a draft programme for government are still not agreed, however, including agriculture, pensions, the economy and climate change, including the crucial 7pc emissions reduction target.
