Labour leader calls for exit plan to be sped up

The Labour leader has called for the five phase exit plan to be sped up.

Alan Kelly has said the lockdown should end on July 20th and the travel limits should be scrapped by the end of this month.

Cabinet Ministers will meet face to face for the first time this evening before a crucial meeting on moving to phase two tomorrow.

Labour leader Alan Kelly wants them to speed up the ending of the lockdown.

"The Labour Party believes that should be brought forward, if all the statistics keep going in the same direction - maybe to four phases.

"But simply, the idea that we can put the whole country into hibernation, which was what was planned at the beginning and understandably so, but given where we are now we need to look at living with the disease."
