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 O'Shea — the urgent need for the State to provide for the treatment of public cancer patients at the Whitfield Clinic, Waterford; (2) Deputy Gogarty — that the Minister ensure the difficulty involving patients receiving continued treatment by a doctor is resolved; (3) Deputy Catherine Murphy — the chaos at locations close to train stations where commuters are attempting to mix modes of transport by driving as close to the station and parking nearby and taking the train onwards. The intention of Irish Rail to introduce parking at their train station car parks in the absence of feeder bus services and proper footpath and cycle provision will make train use less attractive and add to congestion; (4) Deputy Ó Snodaigh — the need for the Minister to put in place greater provisions in the event of fire emergencies; (5) Deputy Broughan — the urgent need for the Minister to ensure the site and campus of the historic Greendale community school, Kilbarrack, Dublin 5, retains its critical educational and community role for local residents; (6) Deputy Costello — the need for the Minister to address the sudden arrival of large quantities of heroin on the drugs market; and (7) Deputy Neville — the Capway Bioenergy Project proposed for Foynes, County Limerick.

The matters raised by Deputies O'Shea, Gogarty, Neville and Ó Snodaigh have been selected for discussion.
