SEN. DALY CALLS FOR NATIONWIDE IMPLEMENTATION OF KERRY’S 1km RULE FOR MOBILE PHONE MASTS

Senator Mark Daly has welcomed Kerry County Council’s decision to refuse permission for the proposed construction of a 12 metre high mobile phone mast in Glenbeigh, Co. Kerry and spoke in the Seanad this week on the case in Annascaul, Co. Kerry where An Bord Pleanála granted permission for the erection of a mast despite the objection raised by Kerry County Council. Senator Daly has long voiced his opposition to the plan on a public health and safety basis. Having already expressed his concern over mobile phone masts in previous debates in Seanad Éireann, the Senator cited a personal vested interest in the issue, both his aunt and uncle died of cancer and having lived and worked less than a 1km away from a mobile phone mast. Furthermore, the erection of mobile phone masts within a kilometre of schools and hospitals is prohibited under Kerry County Council’s Development Plan, a rule which would have been broken if the proposed development at Glenbeigh had gone ahead. The Development Plan states that 'It is the policy of the Planning Authority that telecommunication masts shall not be located within 1 kilometre of residential properties, schools, hospitals or any structures where there are is human occupancy for residential or daily work purposes'. In recognising the seriousness of the issue, Senator Daly called for Kerry Council’s standard rule of 1km to be implemented at a national level and calls on Minister Gormley to include it on the forthcoming Planning and Development Bill. Speaking in the Seanad, Senator Daly stated that 'We must have a national policy in regard to the siting of mobile phone masts. I ask the Leader to facilitate a debate with the Minister which should include consideration of a nationwide provision similar to Kerry County Council's 1km rule in respect of the siting of all masts but bearing in mind the need to provide broadband.'

391,000 Irish People Could Develop Brain Tumours Due to Mobile Phones by 2020 - Costs to the Health Service Estimated at almost €70 billion

391,000 Irish People could develop brain tumours due to mobile phones by the year 2020. On Day 2 of the Global Conference chaired by Senator Mark Daly this startling figure came to light. In his presentation to the EM Radiation Trust at National Academy of Science in the UK, Lloyd Morgan, Director of the Brain Tumour Registry in the US predicted stark figures. Using the same percentage of people who developed cancer from smoking (10% of smokers developed lung caner), Mr. Morgan said “If this figure was to be used in the case of mobile phone users 1.6 million Americans would develop brain tumours by 2020 compared with 50,000 today”. The cost of this explosion in cancer cases would cost an estimated $400bn. Senator Daly, who chaired the session, commented on the figures saying that in an Irish context, due to our status as the 6th highest mobile phone penetration in EU (ComReg 2007), over 391,000 Irish people could develop brain tumours by 2020. The estimated cost to the Health Service, when using the American statistics, is at nearly €70 billion. Click here to read more...

The propaganda war rages in the U.K. - Ireland to follow?

The government has promised to fund a new Systems Biology Department at UCD while buying Tetra from Motorola before it left Ireland in 2007.
