Green Party leader says people should be free to continue to work from home

COVID-19 should be seen as a moment of change that we can benefit from. 

That's according to leader of the Green Party who says people should be free to continue to work from home into the future. 

Less commuters will result in a reduction of emissions and the need to build more roads. 

Eamon Ryan says it will improve everyone's quality of life.

"You start to have a switch or a change in the next four or five years, firstly it improves people's quality of life, it actually improves journey times for everyone because you're freeing up all the traffic jam.

"It make people healthier because you're really creating an environment where it's safe to walk and cycle, and you're also reducing emissions.

"That seems to me to be a win-win-win for everyone."
