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 Education and Skills to provide funding for a shuttle bus service for Finn Valley college, County Donegal.
I have also received notice from Senator Averil Power of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to ensure the Lois Bridges Eating Disorders Treatment Centre in Sutton is fully utilised by the HSE and appropriate private health providers given the urgent need for improved services for people suffering from eating disorders.
I have also received notice from Senator Paul Bradford of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to outline his proposals to secure the long-term financial viability of farmers and farm families with small landholdings.
I have also received notice from Senator Jillian van Turnhout of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Social Protection to address inappropriate advertisements for JobBridge placements by immediately acting to ensure guidance for employers is in place that mentoring and training for employees are essential components of any placements.
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.
