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 reinstate funding of €150,000 for an autism spectrum disorder unit and classroom at Finn Valley College, County Donegal.
I have notice from Senator Averil Power of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to maintain funding for Laneview Learning Centre Dublin 17 at the current level in 2012 so that the centre can continue to provide vital education and self-development opportunities for methadone users in the area.
I have notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to outline the reason the relocation of a nursing home to meet HIQA standards should be classified as "start up/new build" and not as a "current operation".
I have notice from Senator Mark Daly of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to give an update on the provision of a cystic fibrosis adult inpatient bed at the Cork University Hospital, in light of the fact that nearly €2 million have been collected by the voluntary organisation Build for Life and a furthered €300,000 would allow the project to go ahead.
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.
