Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Treacy: asked the Minister for Lands if he is aware of the need to improve the conditions of employment, especially in respect of heating and ventilation, in Dundrum Sawmills, County Tipperary; and, if so, what steps he is taking to deal with the matter.
Mr. S. Flanagan: This includes improved toilet accommodation, wash basins, hot water. At present a heating system is in the process of being designed and it is hoped to have it in operation by next winter.
Mr. Tully: Is the Minister aware that this matter has been under discussion by the trade union concerned and his Department for the past 12 or 15 months? Surely the Minister will agree that it is unfair that it should be left right through last winter when some type of  heating and ventilation could have been introduced?
