Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to clarify if she is aware that there is long-term damage to children's backs and overall posture caused by backward sloping school chairs used as standard practice in all Irish schools.
I have also received notice from Senator Paudie Coffey of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to produce a national strategy to deal with public exposure to radon gas due to high levels of the gas in parts of Ireland and the subsequent threat of exposure to public health.
I have also received notice from Senator Jerry Buttimer of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Justice and Law Reform to make a statement on the measures taken and in place to prevent entry into Ireland by EU and non-EU citizens with known criminal records.
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.
