Mr Martin said ( about Leo Varadkar ) : "No-one should be in any doubt about the fact we are not returning to pre-March reality. The economic recession, which the pandemic has caused, is the most rapid and dramatic ever recorded”. The Government is doing what it can to battle the impact of the virus, he said. Among the top 50 measures included in the stimulus plan are: a 2% cut in the VAT rate from 23% to 21%, for six months from September; pandemic unemployment payments will continue until April, but will be gradually cut to the level of jobseeker's benefit; a revised wage subsidy scheme will be extended until the end of March; a 'stay and spend' tax rebate worth up to €125 per person to help the tourism sector; €200m in training and apprenticeship schemes, designed to help 75,000 people; €500m in capital funds and construction, with retrofitting, schools, sports, and tourism among the sectors to benefit; €450m in business funds, raising the restart grant from a cap of €4,000 to €25,000; increasing the Help To Buy scheme to €30,000, or 10% of the cost of a home; waiving commercial rates until the end of September, with €2bn also available under the credit guarantee scheme. Tánaiste and business minister Leo Varadkar said the six-month reduction in the VAT rate, going down from 23% to 21% from September, will “be particularly beneficial for the retail sector, furniture stores, clothing shops, and also for pubs and restaurants”.

The economic recession, which the pandemic has caused, is the most rapid and dramatic ever recorded”. The Government is doing what it can to battle the impact of the virus, he said. Among the top 50 measures included in the stimulus plan are: a 2% cut in the VAT rate from 23% to 21%, for six months from September; pandemic unemployment payments will continue until April, but will be gradually cut to the level of jobseeker's benefit; a revised wage subsidy scheme will be extended until the end of March; a 'stay and spend' tax rebate worth up to €125 per person to help the tourism sector; €200m in training and apprenticeship schemes, designed to help 75,000 people; €500m in capital funds and construction, with retrofitting, schools, sports, and tourism among the sectors to benefit; €450m in business funds, raising the restart grant from a cap of €4,000 to €25,000; increasing the Help To Buy scheme to €30,000, or 10% of the cost of a home; waiving commercial rates until the end of September, with €2bn also available under the credit guarantee scheme. Tánaiste and business minister Leo Varadkar said the six-month reduction in the VAT rate, going down from 23% to 21% from September, will “be particularly beneficial for the retail sector, furniture stores, clothing shops, and also for pubs and restaurants”.
