Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Simon Coveney (Cork South Central, Fine Gael)
Public liability insurance has been an issue and a problem for many festivals for quite some time. While we have taken a whole series of actions to respond to that, the Government is open all the time to new approaches. The Minister of State, Deputy D’Arcy, is focused on driving down insurance costs, including public liability costs. I am not aware there has been any specific examination of cover for Galway 2020. I will come back to the Deputy on that matter. If the Labour Party has proposals in respect of insurance cover, I will ask the Minister of State, Deputy D’Arcy, to look at them.
