Before coming to the Order of Business, I propose to deal with a notice under Standing Order 32. I call on Deputy Feighan.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely the jobs losses at Emerald Star and the implications for tourism potential along the Shannon; Emerald Star is the number one boat rental and cruising company, offering a huge fleet on the Shannon providing excellent employment.

Having considered the matter raised, it is not in accordance with Standing Order 32.
