Vol. 240 No. 7

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Fire Prevention Instructions.


asked the Minister for Education if in view of the heavy loss and damage caused by fires particularly in industrial premises he will provide that the various vocational education authorities include in their curricula provisions for the prevention and extinguishment of fire when using potentially dangerous equipment.

My information is that students and teachers in vocational schools involved in the use of potentially dangerous equipment are adequately instructed in taking safety precautions, including precautions against fire.
