We will do as the Deputy suggests. We received a further item of correspondence, which is not on the list, from Keith Gordon in Sidmonton Road, Bray. Mr. Gordon states:
I am writing to you as chairman of the Joint Committee on the Environment, Heritage and Local Government on behalf of the families of the two deceased firefighters who were killed while attending a factory fire on 26 September 2007 in Bray, County Wicklow.
As you may be aware, the O'Shaughnessy and Murray families have embarked on a campaign for a full-time fire service and an independent inquiry into the events of that day.
As a result, both families would like to request that a small delegation from the campaign make a presentation to the committee highlighting the many problems faced by the retained firefighters in Bray. I would be very grateful if you could facilitate us in this request.
I propose that we agree to meet the delegation and the Minister of State, Deputy Killeen, who has responsibility for the fire services, when a suitable time can be agreed.
