Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said the Government has proposed that elements of Phase 3 of lifting of restrictions could be brought forward into Phase 2. He said this would be subject to Cabinet approval.
He added elements of Phase 4 could be brought forward into Phase 3.
Mr Varadkar was responding to the leader of the Green Party, Eamon Ryan, who asked for more guidance for businesses which were planning to reopen this summer.
Speaking in the Dáil, he said he is confident that we can advance to Phase 2 of the roadmap to reopen the country on Monday.
