Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government

Prohibition of Micro-Plastics Bill 2016: Discussion (Resumed)

9:30 am

Mr. Conall O'Connor:

In our briefing document we have outlined some of the measures we are supporting and taking and on which we are leading in a transboundary context. They are only part of a range of measures being looked at. With reference to sediment, we have actually taken samples from sub-tidal and inter-tidal zones around the country. We are about to seek tenders to have these samples analysed. That is just one of the things we have done.
