McMANUS PROPOSES KEY RECOMMENDATIONS TO CLOSE HEADSHOP IN BRAY.
Following her consultation involving local groups and individuals in Bray,
Labour TD Liz McManus has proposed a set of key recommendations in regard
to the Headshop in the town .
Deputy McManus said “Having organised a number of small group meetings, I
have received support for:
1)The Minister for Health & Children, Mary Harney, to act swiftly to
introduce the full range of regulations to tackle this scourge.
2) Bray Town Council under planning and bye-laws to work on an All-Party
basis to ensure the Headshop is closed down.
3) The owner of the premises to play his part in ensuring the speedy
closure of his shop.
“There is a need to involve all relevant authorities including the Fire
Safety Officer, the Revenue Commissioners, the Gardaí, and the Office of
Tobacco Control and I am liaising with Labour Cllr Tracy O’Brien who
attended a consultative meeting and offered her support.”
