Business of Seanad
I have received 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 include the new schools building projects for Scoil Náisiúnta Gort a' Choirce, County Donegal, and St. Mary's national school, Stranorlar, County Donegal, on the Department's five year capital programme given that so much detailed preparatory work has taken place to date.
I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to outline when he plans to build a community school in Ennistymon, County Clare, to replace the three existing second level schools.
I have also received notice from Senator Kathryn Reilly of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to discuss the progress made to date to establish the panel for hearing and determining appeals on turf cutting and harvesting rights, the timetable for its establishment, when the panel will begin its work and when appeals will be heard.
I have also received notice from Senator Denis Landy of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Defence to provide information on the reasons for delays in the provision of premises for the Reserve Defence Force to meet and carry out weekly training in Clonmel and Mullingar and to advise when premises will be provided at both locations.
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.
