Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Shane Ross that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to establish a transparent system for individuals to monitor their asylum applications.
I have also received notice from Senator Jerry Buttimer of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to make a statement on the tax incentives as promised and the Government's plans for the Cork docklands.
I have also received notice from Senator Pascal Donohoe of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to provide an update on plans to provide quality bus corridors in the Phoenix Park and other plans for the park environment.
I have also received notice from Senator Pearse Doherty of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to commit to ensuring the proper dispersion of the student services charge by higher education institutions throughout Ireland and to guarantee that all moneys collected through the student services charge are invested in student services, and not used to pay down institutional debt.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Ross, Buttimer and Donohoe as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Doherty may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
