Business of Seanad.
I have received notice from Senator Brennan that on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to give an update on the progress report on an application by a school (details supplied) for its new school building project.
I have also received notice from Senator Henry of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Foreign Affairs to protest to the Libyan Government regarding the treatment and death sentence imposed on the Bulgarian nurses and Palestinian doctor accused of infecting children there with HIV.
I have also received notice from Senator Ulick Burke of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health and Children to indicate the up-to-date position in regard to the planning, financing and construction of new facilities at St. Brendan's Hospital, Loughrea, County Galway, following her visit to the hospital earlier this year.
I have also received notice from Senator Bannon of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to clarify the position regarding the commencement of the Rathowen sewerage scheme, the provision of which is urgently required in the interest of environmental, health, residential and commercial interests and tourism in the area.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Brennan, Henry and Ulick Burke and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Bannon may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
