Speaking on RTE Radio, Humphreys said people who are in the payment and are unable to work due to the loss of their job should be looking for employment.

Humphreys who has defended the decision to suspend pandemic payments for those who leave the country for nonĀ  essential reasons also said people should be looking for other employment opportunities if they are unable to continue in their current role.
