I have received notice from Senator Maria Corrigan that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health and Children to report on the opportunity for a national campaign to be undertaken to identify the whereabouts of the hundreds of children missing from the care of the HSE in recent years and to indicate if a dedicated telephone number will be established to assist the public in passing on information on their safety and whereabouts.

I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to evaluate and appraise the music for schools project being undertaken in St Agnes's school, Crumlin, given the high praise for it on issues beyond music prowess, and to use the results of such an appraisal to jointly support the expansion of the project through a partnership with the Arts Council.

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.
