Business of Seanad.
I have received notice from Senator Kitt that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to allow tenants in voluntary housing the opportunity to purchase the houses they are renting.
I have also received notice from Senator Feighan of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to clarify if his Department is planning to introduce new areas of special protection in the country; and if Lough Key Forest Park is included in these proposals.
I have also received notice from Senator O'Meara of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to ensure that St. Sheelan's College of Further Education, Templemore, is sanctioned for a building programme to accommodate at least 200 students on the campus, given the high demand for courses at the college and the need for the Department to give the go-ahead as soon as possible.
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.
