Sinn Féin wants to see urgent payments made to workers and families to deal with the cost of living crisis.
It's proposing a 200 euro payment to every adult earning less than 30,000 euro, and 100 euro for those earning under 60,000.
The party's social protection spokesperson, Claire Kerrane, says the government needs to act now.
''We need to see targeted measures. The big issue with the government measures today has they've been far too broad. They haven't had the impact that we need to see. And they haven't reached those households, workers and families who are really struggling. And I mean, we've seen that through the energy crisis and prices which continue to rise. And now we're seeing more and more on our supermarket shelves as well. And that's obviously adding to already pressures among households.''
