DUBLIN (Reuters) – A senior member of one of the three parties negotiating to form a new government in Ireland said an additional package of support measures for coronavirus-hit firms from July was a key part of talks that all sides hope to wrap up this week.

Acting Health Minister Simon Harris, whose Fine Gael party are seeking to form a coalition with rivals Fianna Fail and the Green Party, said a draft policy programme could be agreed this week that would then require ratification from grassroots members of all parties.
