Business of Seanad
I have notice from Senator Pearse Doherty that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health and Children to clarify if her position remains the same that, to provide safe and efficient radiation oncology services for a given region, a critical mass of population of 500,000 must be in place as reiterated in the Health Service Executive cancer control strategy of last year.
I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to provide a Garda station at Carndonagh, County Donegal, to service the needs of the north Inishowen population as promised in recent years.
I have also received notice from Senator Michael McCarthy of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to allocate funding immediately to provide floodlighting at Ballinacarriga Castle in Dunmanway, County Cork.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken on the conclusion of business.
