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 Health to discuss the reduction in staff numbers employed at Waterford Regional Hospital from 2007 to 2014, notably the reduction in whole-time equivalent numbers from 1,903.01 in July 2007 to 1,597.29 in January 2014, and to outline the plans the HSE has to increase staff numbers at the hospital in 2014.
I have also received notice from Senator Mark Daly of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to address the concerns held by the building community regarding SI No. 80 of 2013 under the Building Control Act 2013.
I have also received notice from Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to clarify the steps being taken by his Department to reduce the backlog in the processing and renewal of aquaculture licence applications.
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.
