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


The need for the Minister for Justice and Equality to discuss Internet blocking systems, the judicial basis for the implementation of such systems in Ireland and the potential consequences of automated filtering systems.
I have also received notice from Senator Paschal Mooney of the following matter:
The need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection to outline the response of the Government to the decision by the European Court of Justice in the Dano case, the number of welfare tourists who are being paid social welfare in Ireland and the action, if any, the Government will take if the Government of the United Kingdom introduces restrictions on access to unemployment benefits.
I have also received notice from SenatorGerard Craughwell of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to outline why Fampyra is not currently provided to MS patients under the long-term illness scheme given its proven positive effects for some who suffer from the condition.
I have also received notice from Senator Thomas Byrne of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to comment on the current position and future of the acute psychiatric unit, Navan, County Meath.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Reilly, Mooney and Byrne as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Craughwell as it involves a repeat of the reply to a similar matter on the Adjournment on 7 October 2014.
