Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31


3:00 pm

Jerry Cowley (Mayo, Independent)

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the need for the Health and Safety Authority to immediately intervene in the chaotic and hazardous situation obtaining in the accident and emergency department at Mayo General Hospital, Castlebar, where there is a major health hazard due to overcrowding, where there is a major risk of spread of infection and malnutrition due to no hot food being served, where critical areas are blocked up, where the Mayo disaster plan could not be implemented, where people's dignity and personal safety are at risk and where 40 medical beds are urgently needed.
