I have notice from the Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:

Chun iarraidh ar an tAire Thalmhaíochta, Bia and Mara cathain a bhfuil sé i gceist aige deireadh chur leis an bac ar iascaireacht a dheánamh ar, agus cad atá sé i gceist aige a dheánamh chun tacaíocht a thabhairt don tionscail sin. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when he intends to lift the ban on eel fishing and what measures he intends to take to support that industry.

I also have notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Social Protection to facilitate local authorities in the collection of housing rents in order to assist tenants in their day-to-day household financial management.

I also have notice from Senator Catherine Noone of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to clarify the arrangement between Bord Gáis and the Grand Canal Theatre and the rules governing sponsorship of Government-funded spaces.

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.
