Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
I want to ask the Tánaiste about time lost on the community employment, CE, Tús and the back to work enterprise allowance schemes. Many participants have lost time in regard to normal training opportunities and work experience that would be a big part of those schemes because of Covid. While I appreciate announcements have been made by the Minister for Social Protection, Deputy Humphreys, in regard to community employment in particular, as current participants have lost time and have not had all the benefits of these schemes due to Covid, will an extension be considered for them?
