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


To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if his Department has received a full cost benefit analysis of the proposed new monster sewage plant in Clonshaugh, if his officials have examined it, what factors were taken into account in this analysis and if he will ensure that this analysis is published.
I have also received notice from Senator Marie Moloney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Social Protection to adjust the date forward for verification on applications for JobBridge in respect of applications by schools.
I have also received notice from Senator Lorraine Higgins of the following matter:
To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, in light of the closure of Yeats' Tower, Thoorballylee, in Ballylee, outside Gort, County Galway, if he will consider locating those artefacts relating to and previously contained within Yeats' Tower in alternative accommodation for members of the public to view in order to benefit visitors and the economy in general in Gort and south Galway.
I have also received notice from Senator Deirdre Clune of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to ensure that an inquiry is carried out and published as to why there were mistakes in the leaving certificate honours maths paper.
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.
