Business of Seanad
I have notice from Senator Ulick Burke that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister Health and Children and the Health Service Executive to provide adequate funding to the Brothers of Charity in Ballinasloe for the delivery of a properly resourced service to persons with a disability, both adults and children, who are experiencing severe curtailment of these services at present.
I have also received notice from Senator Kitt of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to clarify if he has received the preliminary report, the water pricing policy report and information required on the Glenamaddy sewerage scheme, County Galway, and when approval will be given to start work on the scheme.
I have also received notice from Senator Morrissey of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to clarify whether the secondary school for Donabate, County Dublin, will be included in the next list of capital projects in order that the school will be in place for September 2008 to meet the growing number of students in this area of north Dublin.
I have also received notice from Senator Bannon of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to indicate the current status of the application by Melview national school, Longford, County Longford, for the provision of three additional classrooms, a resource room for the resource teacher for Traveller, RTT, an office and a storeroom, which are urgently required to facilitate increased enrolment in the school which serves this rapidly expanding area.
I have also received notice from Senator McHugh of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to assist the board of management at Ray national school, County Donegal, in light of recent flood damage and to help safeguard the school against the same happening again in future.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Ulick Burke, Kitt and Morrissey and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senators Bannon and McHugh may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise.
