I have notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Social Protection to discuss the way self-employed PRSI contributions can be taken and yet entitle the payer to nothing when injured or ill, through no fault of their own.

I have also received notice from Senator David Cullinane of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to discuss the progress that has been made in designating Waterford Institute of Technology as a university and the importance of this for the south east region.

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.
