Irish parliament to reconvene after brief suspension

16 Sep 2020 / 01:50 H.

    DUBLIN, Sept 15 (Reuters) - The Irish parliament is to reconvene on Tuesday evening, ending a brief suspension announced a few hours earlier out of an "abundance of caution" when a minister fell ill, Prime Minister Micheal Martin said.

    Government ministers are to restrict their movements while they wait for the results of a COVID-19 test being taken by Health Minister Stephen Donnelly, Martin said in an interview with RTE television. (Reporting by Conor Humphries Editing by Chris Reese)
