"No Evidence" Hand Sanitisers, Soaps, Sprays And Wipes Being Withdrawn From Schools Are Unsafe

That's according to the Education Minister

Norma Foley says the products are being taken out of circulation because of a "technical licencing issue".

Last night 52 products were taken off a list of 172, which were approved for use in schools -- after a review found they weren't on a register of safe products. 

Minister Norma Foley says if the paperwork can be sorted out - they could be put back into schools eventually. 

Labour's spokesperson on education Aodhán Ó Riordáin says school communities don't have much faith in how this is being handled.
