PROBE INTO MOBILE PHONE DANGERS

This is an update on the Irish Government's public display of its concern that citizens' health, and especially children, be adequately protected from potential--and actual-- adverse bioeffects from mobile telephony.

"PROBE INTO MOBILE PHONE DANGERS"
by Juno McEnroe

Communications Department experts will be quizzed next week about the potential dangers of mobile phones following a British scientific report that said children should not use them.

"We have invited experts from the Department of Communications for their view on the safety and health issues and on the report from Britain," said Communications Oireachtas Committee chairman Noel
O'Flynn.

However, the investigation into handsets may be a joint investigation, as the Oireachtas Committee on Health is considering examining possible adverse health effects.

"The joint committee has decided to invite the Department of Communications to appear before it to discuss the issue and establish at first hand what steps the department is taking to ensure that mobile phone handsets being sold are safe to use," said Mr
O'Flynn.

The British National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) safety study advised that children under eight should not use mobile phones.

"I am taking this report very seriously because we must not risk compromising the health of young children through the use of potentially dangerous handsets. If we are not happy with the department's answers, we may ask the authors of the British report to come over," said Mr O'Flynn.

While no firm decision was reached on mobile technology effects, a number of European companies have withdrawn handsets aimed at young children since the report was published.

A campaign group against mobile phone technology, Mast Action in Meath, has said the NRPB report was being distributed to national schools in the country, so parents were aware of any health risks to children.

The presentation on non-ionising radiation from mobile phone handsets and masts will be heard by the oireachtas committee next Tuesday. The Irish Doctors Environmental Association (IDEA), a lobby group promoting general health, has also been invited to attend proceedings.

In early May, the issue of mobile phone safety will be raised at an EU meeting of technical experts, at which Ireland will be represented by the department's chief technical adviser, Bob Hanna."
