Leo Varadkar confirmed that emergency unemployment payments to people who lost their jobs in the coronavirus crisis will continue beyond mid-June. But he said no decision has been made on whether it would stay at €350-a-week as he traded political blows with Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald on the issue in the Dáil. While she claimed the government would protect the privileged over workers Mr Varadkar severely criticised Sinn Féin's record in government in the North accusing the party of being "two-faced".
