Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney that, on the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Transport to review the ability of rural hackney men to convert to taxi licences where infrastructure is absent and they compete with illegal operators.
I have also received notice from Senator Rónán Mullen of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to indicate when Springdale national school Raheny, Dublin 5 will be permitted to proceed to tender; to clarify under what criteria schools are deemed "priority"; and the length of time schools are expected to remain on the priory list while awaiting approval to proceed to the next stage.
I have also received notice from Senator Pearse Doherty of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to outline the current status of the application for a Garda youth diversion project in Gweedore, County Donegal.
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.
