Written answers (Question to Housing)

A review of public safety in Ireland is currently underway in my Department, including the licensing of both indoor and outdoor events, the planning for and management of crowd events and safety at funfairs. The Review is examining the current regime in Ireland for planning, licensing and managing such events and benchmarking against international best practice. The Review will be concluded in Q4 2019 and legislative amendments will be considered in that context.
