I propose to take Questions Nos. 414, 415 and 425 together.

Detailed statistics on the pandemic unemployment payment are published each week at my Department at gov.ie/dsp/statistics and at the national open data portal, data.gov.ie, including breakdowns by age group and by rate.

The detailed statistics requested by the Deputy in respect of those in receipt of the payment for more than six months are set out in Table 1 below. Statistics in respect of recipients of the PUP by rate of payment are set out in Table 2.
