I have received notice from Senator Cáit Keane that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:


    The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to discuss the issue of substandard conditions and a shortfall of permanent accommodation for Scoil Pobal, Clifden, County Galway; and to give an update on the proposed timeline for the provision of a new school to replace the existing community school in Clifden.
I have also received notice from Senator David Cullinane of the following matter:
    The need for the Minister for Justice and Equality to discuss the issue of ground rents; whether he intends to pursue the abolition of ground rents on the family home and the current situation of the residents of Lismore Park, Lismore Lawn and Lismore Heights in Waterford who are being pursued for ground rents by the landlord.
I have also received notice from Senator Thomas Byrne of the following matter:
    The need for the Minister for Health to give an update on the progress of the Kells primary health care centre.
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.
