Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 32
Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a number of notices under Standing Order 32. I propose to deal with these topics separately and I will call on Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office.
I wish to seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, in view of the fact that on 27 June at a public meeting in Listowel on school transport and on 11 July in Galway, the Minister of State, Deputy Ciaran Cannon, was asked a series of questions and gave the same answers, whether the Government has done anything or will do anything to address the crisis in rural transport as ways of saving money without cutting the service have been pointed out by the Coach Tourism and Transport Council of Ireland.
I wish to seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the grave damage caused in the economies of Ireland and other countries in the EU by the actions of faceless, unelected and unaccountable institutions in the financial markets including ratings agencies and the need to bring these institutions into public ownership and under democratic control to serve the well-being of society rather than maximisation of private corporate profit.
Ba mhaith liom an Dáil a chur ar athló chun déileáil leis an ghné rí-thábhactach seo ar ghá díospóireacht sa Dáil a dhéanamh air. I wish to seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the failure of the Government to release the funding allocated from June for the local drugs task force interim funded projects in both the canals community and south inner city Dublin which is causing serious financial strain and risks resulting in reckless trading in those areas. The projects have no money for wages or for programme work and are being forced to contemplate overdrafts. The Government must immediately release this funding to allow the projects continue their vital work.
