The Government's plans for the reopening of aviation, entertainment and sport will be revealed next week.

The Taoiseach says a 'comprehensive statement' will be made, ahead of the next phase of reopening in June and July.

Micheál Martin says the Government will engage with airlines to 'reboot' the aviation sector, which he says is 'crucial'.

He also told his parliamentary party tonight the government's currently reviewing mandatory hotel quarantine.

Mr Martin also said he expects one million vaccinations will be done this month.

He told Fianna Fáil TDs and senators that 280,000 vaccines have been delivered over the last week.

He addressed his party as the Dáil debated the Government's new measures aimed at dissuading investment funds from bulk buying houses.

TDs have been debating a financial resolution that would make funds pay 10% stamp duty for purchases of ten or more houses.

The Taoiseach told the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party meeting he wants to get supply of new homes up to 40,000 a year "over the next decade", describing housing as the social issue of this generation.
