Snippet Contents:

Senator Aideen Hayden mentioned the plight of tenants at Longboat Quay. I agree with her that there is a need for them to have a voice. Looking at all of the buildings that have created difficulties for owners and tenants, I ask myself daily what were the architects, engineers, fire officers and local authorities doing. They were the ones who were supposed to be regulating to ensure buildings would be safe. As things happened on their watch, they should be held to account. It is dreadful to see people living in houses and apartments which are unsafe. Those involved need to be held accountable, even if it is many years afterwards. Developers and builders are also responsible. They must bear some responsibility. They have been let off for far too long and washed their hands of the problem. We must ensure the architects, engineers, fire officers and the rest of those mentioned are held to account. Senator Sean D. Barrett also made that point. He also called for a debate on climate change, in which context he referred to the flooding in Cork, the Volkswagen emissions case and the role of the insurance sector in the matter. I agree with him that a debate on it would be timely. I will try to arrange it.
Senator Michael Mullins has highlighted the fact that this is Road Safety Week and called on motorists to check their vehicles, including the tyres. He also asked cyclists to be vigilant on the roads.
Senator Catherine Noone mentioned a Healthy Ireland study in which it was outlined that 60% of the population, including me, were still overweight.
