Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31


4:00 pm

Jerry Cowley (Mayo, Independent)

I wish to seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to raise a matter of national importance: the crisis which exists in Ballina, County Mayo with the loss of 1,000 jobs net in the past nine years; where the unemployment rate is twice the national average at 11%, more than the numbers on the live register in the entire County Roscommon; where another 42 jobs have been lost recently in Duffy's bakery, with no Government action plan in place to help this employment black spot, which is directly due to the infrastructure deficit, as proved by the €3.9 billion underspend in the BMW region and the lack of action by this Government.
