I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to debate the following urgent matter: in light of the recent lack of confidence in the health system, it is of urgent public importance that the Minister for Health and Children confirm when the extra hospice bed in a specialised ward for South Tipperary General Hospital will be approved, as patients in distress are currently in a highly unsuitable ward.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to debate the following urgent matter: the closing of applications for the farm improvement scheme and the need to make available the necessary funding so that those who have applied in good faith will be able to make the necessary improvements to their holdings in order to meet their obligations under various regulations and to remain competitive and viable producers.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to debate the following urgent matter: the lack of an effective Government policy to tackle the estimated 100,000 uninsured drivers on our roads who, it is estimated, caused at least 20 deaths last year, injured more than 2,000 people and cost €59 million in insurance claims thus adding €45 to the insurance premium of each law-abiding driver.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to debate the following urgent matter: the need for the Minister of State with responsibility for children, Deputy Brendan Smith, to come into the Dáil to make a detailed statement and to answer questions on his intentions with regard to the community child care subvention scheme, the new system of funding for community and voluntary child care facilities which is causing grave concern in the sector with fears that it will result in closure of crèches, loss of jobs, increased fees for many parents and a two-tier system, and the need for clarity in the wake of today's reports that the Minister of State intends to alter the scheme and introduce a new income threshold.
