I have received notice from Senator David Cullinane 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 discuss the report commissioned by the Higher Education Authority on the future of third level education in the State, its conclusions and the proposals regarding a national technological university with a campus in both Dublin and Waterford.
I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:
The need for the Minster 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 Mary Ann O'Brien of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to outline the provisions in place to prevent and control the growth of ragwort; and whether further measures are required, given the high prevalence of the weed this year, owing to the threat it poses to livestock.
I have also received notice from Senator Paschal Mooney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to investigate the reasons Bus √Čireann is limiting access to the public on its national Expressway routes.
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.
