Workers have slammed a "glaring loophole" in the Covid-19 job retention scheme that means it's not available to people with a brand new job. Yet the rate is based on February's wage, so anyone who started their job after February 28 is not eligible.

The Childhood Trust said 40% of 65 London-based charities it surveyed will struggle to keep their doors open to vulnerable children without another source of income. It estimates more than 100,000 children could be left without key support, such as meals and mental health care. Of the 65 charities, which support around 184,000 children and young people, 90% said they are certain children will go hungry during the Covid-19 outbreak. And two thirds (66%) said they feel unprepared for an influx in young people needing support during the crisis. "For many of these children, the crisis is exacerbating chronic anxiety, stress, inadequate diets, domestic violence, loss of peer support and rapid mental health deterioration."

The Communication Workers Union said daily deliveries should be reduced to three times a week with only parcels, packets and first class mail being delivered on alternate days. In a letter to the Royal Mail and the Government, it said the company should cease acting as a commercial operation and instead operate as a vital national service, with postal workers given key worker status. (Image: Matthew Horwood)All unaddressed advertising mail should be immediately suspended, and Government contracts enabling public testing and the delivery of official information to the public must be prioritised, it was urged. Postal workers could check on the elderly and vulnerable to flag up any concerns, collecting and delivering food parcels and medical prescriptions and equipment, said the CWU. Other suggestions included employees only compelled to work alternate days to enable strict social distancing and total equipment cleansing every day.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected the March PMI to come in at 45.0. China's yuan, however, didn't budge, reflecting analysts' broad views that a sustainable bounce in manufacturing activity looked some way off despite a slowdown in China's coronavirus infections from its peak in February. China's service sector activity also expanded, with official non-manufacturing PMI coming in at 52.3, from 29.6 in February, a separate NBS survey showed. The service sector now makes up a larger share of China's economy than at the time of the 2002/03 SARS coronavirus epidemic, accounting for about 60pc of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). "The situation remains volatile as the trajectory of the COVID-19 virus outbreak in several key economies is still unpredictable," ANZ analysts said in a note.

The €3,000 tax free gift frequently features in your column. Should I prepare a formal memo to verify this practice in case Revenue seek some evidence of the gift? I do mention the small gift exemption quite a bit and deliberately so. There is no limit on who can give to whom under the small gift exemption. For instance, if you gave this son €3,000 and then gave someone else €3,000 with the intention that they, too, would give it to your son, Revenue would not be at all happy.

DANIELLE McLAUGHLINColour is the word that first comes to mind when I think of The Moth. I just like her poem and I take hope that a magazine like The Moth exists to publish poems like it. Portrait of Moth directors painted by Bradley Wood, former winner of Moth Art PrizeCHRISTINE DWYER-HICKEYWhat I love about The Moth magazine is that it honours the visual arts as well as the written word. MEDBH McGUCKIANAlthough it feels like a very young magazine, The Moth is a fitting successor to the indispensable THE SHOp. It so happened that a handful of these poetic efforts made their errant way to the newly arrived Moth magazine.
