The number of people on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment dropped in the past week, despite new restrictions on the hospitality sector.

The benefit is reopened for those who’ve lost their jobs in the latest measures today.

Just over 53,000 people are in receipt of PUP this week – a three percent drop on last week.

The biggest drop over the past week was in the accommodation and food service sectors.
