Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Jerry Buttimer that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to make a statement on the provision of funding for Cork City Council towards the renewal of quay walls.
I have also received notice from Senator Nicky McFadden of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to prioritise Civil Defence for funding and resources in the budget on 9 December.
I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:
To ask the Minister for Transport, in view of the commitment he gave at the meeting of the Joint Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement in July to raise the issue of the Enterprise train service at the North-South Ministerial Council meeting in November, if he will give an update on the progress made at that meeting.
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.
