An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Charles Flanagan (Laois, Fine Gael)
I was very pleased to meet local stakeholders in the areas of education, welfare and community development. A number of important suggestions were put forward. I would be very happy to engage with my colleague, the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Deputy Bruton, to ensure what whole-of-Government approach might be taken to what is a very serious issue in that area. I was also pleased to be in the presence of the Garda Commissioner, Drew Harris, in Templemore on Friday last when a number of new gardaí were assigned to Garda stations in Deputy Broughan's constituency and who have already taken up duty to ensure we can maximise efforts against crime and anti-social behaviour in the Deputy's constituency.
