Business of Seanad.
I have received notice from Senator Bannon that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to clarify the position on funding, for the community employment scheme through which Longford County Council maintains its burial grounds under a cemetery maintenance programme.
I have also received notice from Senator Ulick Burke of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to review the allocation of special needs teachers under the new arrangement as it discriminates against all-girl schools especially as it applies to Presentation primary school in Tuam, County Galway.
I have also received notice from Senator Kenneally of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health and Children to provide radiotherapy facilities for the south east at Waterford Regional Hospital in view of the recommendations of the Irish Society of Medical Oncologists.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
