Business of Seanad
I have notice from Senator Finucane that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to arrange the transfer of the 50 Revenue staff employed in temporary accommodation in Limerick city who have completed the training programme and if the transfer can be arranged to a temporary premises at Newcastle West because of the ongoing delay in the opening of the new decentralisation office.
I have also received notice from Senator John Paul Phelan of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to outline the feasibility of extending third level grants to students dependent upon those in receipt of State contributory pensions, irrespective of additional means.
I have also received notice from Senator Ulick Burke of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to indicate her plans for the provision of a new primary school in Killimor, Ballinasloe, following eight years of delay through change in site location, school plans and uncertainty whether it was to be a new school or an extension to the existing inadequate school.
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.
