Covid-19 (Health): Statements
Simon Harris (Wicklow, Fine Gael)
There was an assessment of this workplace and guidance was to be provided not just to Deputies, Senators and Ministers but everybody who works in this place to whom we owe a duty of care. That includes our staff and everybody else. It was the view in the advice, and I am only going along with that not as a Minister but as a Deputy in my workplace. It is the Oireachtas public health advice from an independent expert brought in by the service.
