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 Health to have the full rheumatology service restored at Letterkenny General Hospital, County Donegal.
I have also received notice from Senator Paschal Mooney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to clarify if he recognises the vital support provided by Foroige's "Big Brother, Big Sister" initiative, the social and economic benefits resulting from the initiative, accepts the need for the service to continue and if he will make a statement on the matter.
I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs to establish a missing children's hotline in Ireland.
I have also received notice from Senator David Cullinane of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources to publish, as a matter of urgency, the Cahill/Frontier Economics report on the ESB and to commit to the future of the ESB as a vertically integrated utility.
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.
