Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames that, on the motion for the Adjournment today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to outline the rationale for delaying a school building programme (details supplied) until 2015-16 given the chronic conditions that apply.
I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Social Protection to facilitate part-time firefighters in claiming jobseeker's benefit if they are prepared to quit the fire services if offered employment.
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.
