Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Kathryn Reilly that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to discuss the reduction in the opening hours of the minor injuries unit at Monaghan General Hospital effective from 1 October; the implications of this decision; and the backup being put in place.
I have also received notice from Senator Averil Power of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs to resource the City of Dublin Youth Services Board in order that it can provide the same level of financial support for the Sphere 17 Youth Project, Dublin 17, in 2012 to avoid the extremely damaging effect cuts in funding for Sphere 17 would have on at-risk young people in one of the most socio-economically disadvantaged areas in the country.
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.
