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

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to instruct local authorities to reduce and-or abolish development charges on a temporary basis as they are a deterrent to development.

I have also received notice from Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh of the following matter:

Ar an gá don Aire Chomhsaol Pobal agus Rialtas Aitiúil soléiriú stádas na noibrithe i Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta, agus cad atá i ndán dóibh ó thaobh dlí de, agus cad atá an Roinn tar éis a dhéanamh, nó atá sé d'intinn don Roinn a dhéanamh, chun leasa agus cearta fostaíochta na noibrithe a chosaint.

I have also received notice from Senator Marc MacSharry of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to clarify the situation regarding the upgrade of the N4, between Castledaldwin and Collooney, County Sligo, to a dual carriageway status, in line with the previously stated commitments of the Government.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Clune and Ó Clochartaigh as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.

I regret I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator MacSharry as it is a matter for the National Roads Authority.
