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 Lynch — to ask the Minister if her attention has been drawn to the number of children with diabetes being treated by the paediatric diabetes unit at Cork University Hospital; (2) Deputy Andrews — to ask the Minister if she intends to address the low level of mental health services in the HSE east coast catchment area; (3) Deputy Boyle — to ask the Minister the reason primary and secondary schools in the Cork South-Central constituency (details supplied) are being left in an administrative limbo; (4) Deputy Connolly — to discuss the incorporation of the Knockatallon community playgroup into the new school premises for St. Joseph's national school, Knockatallon, County Monaghan; (5) Deputy Cowley — to ask the Minister to reconsider providing free health care for the estimated 100 women desperately ill with hepatitis C; (6) Deputy Neville — the report on the inequality and stereotyping of young people in Ireland by the Equality Authority and National Youth Council of Ireland; (7) Deputy Stanton — to ask the Minister to debate the need to take action regarding the obvious increase in people dumping domestic refuse on roadsides nationally; and (8) Deputy Deenihan — the failure of the HSE to provide the necessary finance to extend the GP co-operative scheme to north Kerry as GPs in the area are excluded from the service and continue to cover a large rural area without back-up.

The matters raised by Deputies Lynch, Andrews, Deenihan and Boyle have been selected for discussion.
