Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Piggeries in Residential Areas.


asked the Minister for Local Government the present position in relation to piggeries operating in residential areas; and whether he is satisfied that the health of residents and their children is adequately protected in this regard.

Local authorities have adequate statutory powers under the sanitary services and planning codes to ensure that the operation of piggeries will not be detrimental to public health or amenity.
