Asking the Taoiseach for the cross agency report on quads and scramblers.

Asking the Taoiseach if I could get a copy of the report that the cross agency committee on quads and scramblers was said to have issued last February. I have asked for this report before without success. I need clarity from the government if such a report was issued and what were its recommendations.

Speaking at the Dáil Committee on Adolescent Mental Health

Today I spoke at the Dáil committee on Adolescent Mental Health.  Groups and organisation who made presentations to the committee were the HSE, Jigsaw and CAMHS.

I spoke about a number of important mental health issues affecting our young people and highlighted the lack of local mental health services in Dublin North West.

I emphasised that early intervention is essential and such intervention should begin at primary school level.
