Business of Seanad.
I have received notice from Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter: Go dtabharfaidh an tAire Comhshaoil, Pobail & Rialtas Áítiúil soiléiriú maidir le stádas tograí ón gClár LEADER atá ag seasamh amach, go h-áirithe i gceantar na Gaillimhe, sa Ghaeltacht agus ar na hOileáin. I have also received notice from Senator Colm Burke of the following matter:The need for the Minister for Health to outline the changes which are to be implemented to the employment structures of junior doctors in 2014 in view of the fact that over 2,000 of the 4,900 junior doctors are currently retained on six-month contracts. I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:The need for the Minister for Social Protection to introduce strict new protocols to ensure that no correspondence concerning social welfare entitlements issues from her Department to persons who are deceased.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.
