A memo will be brought to Cabinet today in relation to the entitlements of international protection applicants and Ukrainian refugees in Ireland.

Any cuts would be "cruel" according to the Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland.

A decision is expected soon, with the Taoiseach determined to see Ireland adopt a firmer migration system.

Lucky Khambule from MASI says there is a much easier solution:
