Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator John Kelly that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
I have also received notice from Senator David Cullinane of the following matter:
To ask the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to consider a moratorium on wind farm developments until the review of the guidelines under the aegis of his Department is complete.
To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to make a statement on the future of the main ports in the south east, most notably, Rosslare Harbour and Waterford Port, and on the Government's strategy to maximise potential at the ports and any future investment in them.I have also received notice from Senator Darragh O'Brien of the following matter:
To ask the Minister for Health to outline whether the Government will agree to make gratuity payments to home help workers who were employed in this sector between 2000 and 2008 in line with two Labour Court recommendations.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.
