Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill that he proposes to raise the following matter on the Adjournment:
The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to appoint a second permanent District Court judge and the allocation of a second permanent judge in County Donegal in order to reduce the large back log in the Circuit and District Courts services.
I have also received notice from Senator Jerry Buttimer of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Transport to make a statement on the alleviation of Cork Airport's debt and on the creation of an independent——
——autonomous Cork Airport board.
I have also received notice Senator Cecilia Keaveney:
The need for the Minister for Health and Children to clarify why, in the era of huge emphasis on the access to the state of the art cancer services that only 10% of the 50 places negotiated by the Irish Government for Donegal patients to use the new facility in Belfast have been taken up and to make a statement on the matter.
I regard the matters raised as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
