Business of Seanad
I have notice from Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to consider reducing commercial rates by 50% for a 15-month period to support businesses and jobs.
I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Transport to clarify whether he has had talks with the Road Safety Authority to have traffic islands made visible through the use of cats eyes at their base.
I regard the matter raised by Senator Ó Domhnaill as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and it will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret that I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Keaveney as the Minister has no official responsibility in this matter.
