 15.   Councillor McGinley
This council notes the increase in agency employment throughout the economy.We                                      are aware that many workers from home and abroad are offered agency employment when they are seeking direct and permanent employment. We understand trade unions have raised concerns that many of these workers are retained on minimum conditions and in some instances are not receiving all their entitlements.
Agency employment should not be used as an unnecessary substitute for direct employment or as a mechanism for avoidance of or undermining of fair play and conditions. Noting that legislation will come before the Oireachtas on the issue of Agency Employment, this council believes and will recommend to the Minister that the principle of equal treatment should be included in any such legislation on this issue.

16.Councillor Mc Namara
That this Council recognizes the need for action on global warming and the need to conserve energy, reduce carbon emissions and also the need to reduce light pollution of our night skies.
That Kildare County Council will support Earth Hour 200 ( by turning off all non-essential lights controlled by the Council from 9 to 10 p.m. on 29 March 2008 to support a collective world-wide effort to show the difference that can be made by this initiative and to raise public awareness of 
the need to use less energy.  This council requests that the County Manager take all possible steps to implement the turning off of all non-essential lights in its control as part of Earth Hour 2008.
This council also requests that the County Manager write to the local Chamber of Commerce and business community to lend their support to this initiative and seek support from general public.

17.Councillor Mc Evoy 
That the council should, as a matter of urgency, consider putting in place a
strategy, backed up by whatever practical measures are necessary to
overcome the rising tide of graffiti.

18.Councillor Mc Evoy
Does the council consider a rise of more than 36% in one year in the rent
required of tenants appropriate and justifiable?
