Prohibition of Micro-Plastics Bill 2016: Discussion (Resumed)
Dr. Róisín Nash:
I think so. Looking at the evidence that has been supplied here on the fragments and the potential sources, if we focus only on microbeads, we will be missing a whole element that will feed into it. I know a lot of effort goes into these Bills and getting them forward and it is definitely going in the right direction. However, I think we need it to be a little bit more all encompassing and more robust going forward.
