Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Social and Family Affairs to examine the potential to link PRSI contributions in the UK with those made in Ireland
I have also received notice from Senator Shane Ross of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to reassess the budget proposal to reduce tax relief on dental treatment.
I have also received notice from Senator Pearse Doherty of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to address the financial crisis that is being experienced by Donegal County Council, which has led to the announcement that 238 employees of the council are to be made redundant and to outline whether the moneys to be collected from the €200 levy to be applied to all non-principal places of residence has already been included in the contribution made to the council in the form of the local government fund.
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.
