Question:

100 Mr. R. Bruton asked the Minister for the Environment whether he has arranged in consultation with the Higher Education Authority, that adequate fire safety courses would be available on third level courses so that fire safety becomes an integral part of building design; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

These matters are currently being considered in my Department in the light of the recommendations made by the Fire Services Council.
