Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 32.
I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the alarming lack of accountability regarding the 30,000 tonnes of hazardous waste which are unaccounted for in this country each year.
I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to discuss the report of the EU food and veterinary office on Brazilian beef production, which proves that serious irregularities and shortcomings exist, confirms the allegations made by Irish farm groups regarding beef imported from Brazil and the threat it poses to the health of consumers and underlines the difficulties for EU producers to compete with cheap imports. The report further strengthens the case for an EU-wide ban to be imposed on Brazilian beef imports and the need for the Government to support such a ban in the interest of Irish farmers and consumers.
I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the proposal to construct a relief road at Mallow, County Cork and the urgent need to serve notice to land owners within the vicinity of the project before the period expires, beyond which the compulsory purchase order process cannot take place, thus jeopardising the project's future.
