I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 21 and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Healy — that the Minister and the Health Service Executive implement the High Court agreement for the provision of general hospital services in south Tipperary; (2) Deputy Sherlock — the need for the Minister to ask the management of Dairygold, Mitchelstown to pursue means other than closing the meats division if the workers do not agree to a €9 per hour rate of pay as well as other measures; (3) Deputy Pat Breen — the question of whether the recent guidelines issued to local authorities for sustainable rural housing extend to the National Roads Authority whose policy is to object to once off housing needs for landowners' sons and daughters on primary and secondary routes even when the local planning authority having assessed the safety issues involved have granted planning permission; and (4) Deputy Cowley — if the Minister will address the critical situation where the Mulranny, Achill, Ballycroy areas are left without an ambulance base.

The matters raised by Deputies Healy and Cowley have been selected for discussion.
