Calls for Government to increase social welfare payments by €20

The Government is being asked for €20 extra in social welfare payments.

The call comes from Social Justice Ireland in its pre-budget submissions.

It says it must be part of the measures put in place to support households during the rising cost of living.

Spokesperson for Social Justice Ireland Susanne Rogers says it needs to be implemented to lift people out of poverty.
