I have received notice from Senator Mary Ann O'Brien 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 outline the reasons for the lengthy delays being experienced in the processing of domiciliary care allowance and to explain why the families of Jack & Jill Children's Foundation babies are required to complete renewal forms given the fact that their children's medical condition will not improve.

I regard the matter raised by the Senator as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and it will be taken at the conclusion of business.
