I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the way in which the Minister for Health and Children and the Health Service Executive can claim that €531 is the average cost of a bed in a nursing home in counties Cavan and Monaghan when the cheapest bed is more like €665, meaning that old age pensioners have to pay more than half their own old age pension to support their spouse in such a nursing home, leaving them €100 per week to exist on.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the threatened job losses at Molex, Millstreet, County Cork and the need for State agencies charged with job creation to target the Duhallow area of County Cork.
