Mr. Parlon Mr. Parlon
Mr. Parlon: I propose to take Questions Nos. 199 and 203 together.
The two mobile phone operators who have equipment installed on Ardee House have informed the Commissioners of Public Works that they do not intend to comply with the request to deactivate their equipment.
The commissioners have requested the companies to reconsider their decision and will not grant any further licences in respect of State buildings to them, pending the report of the interdepartmental committee on the health effects of electromagnetic radiation.
