Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a notice under Standing Order 32.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the devastation that will be caused to rural dwellers who will be forced from this weekend to pay carbon tax on essential fuels despite being prohibited from cutting their own turf, left without the winter fuel allowance and given no promised help by this Government, which has presided over the destruction of the countryside and the impoverishment of its inhabitants.

Having considered the matter raised, it is not in order under Standing Order 32.
