Outbreaks of Covid-19 in Meat Processing Plants: Statements
My first question is to the Minister, Deputy Creed, and it follows on. Three weeks ago, he accused me in this House of smearing the meat processing plants because I raised with him complaints from the meat factory workers and their unions and I called for them to be inspected by the Health and Safety Authority. Does the Minister now accept that the Health and Safety Authority should have inspected the plants in April when the complaints were made? Will he, please, withdraw his allegation that I was unfairly smearing the meat plants?
