I have notice from Senator Darragh O'Brien 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 provide an update on the progress to award patronage of the proposed Lusk secondary school, and if he will indicate when a decision will be made.

I have also received notice from Senator Kathryn Reilly of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to discuss the progress made to date in the provision of a new fire station in Virginia, County Cavan, what stage this project is at and when it will proceed to the next stage.

I have also received notice from Senator Averil Power of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to advise as to whether he has investigated the proposal for a monster sewerage plant in north Dublin as per the commitment made to Seanad √Čireann on 22 November 2011 by his colleague and the outcome of that investigation.

I have also received notice of Senator Mark Daly of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health to address ongoing concerns over the fluoridation of water in Ireland and to make a statement on the way this compares with the practices of our EU counterparts.

I have also received notice from Senator Thomas Byrne of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Finance to give an update on plans for a playground at Oldbride House, County Meath.

I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators O'Brien, Reilly, Power and Daly and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Byrne may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
