I have notice from Senator Mark Daly that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:


The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to honour commitments made by successive Governments with regard to equal rights for women and to ensure money is ring-fenced to sustain the work of the National Collective of Community-based Women's Networks.
I have also received notice from Senator Averil Power of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs to reverse the 33 per cent cut in funding for the school completion programme imposed over recent years and to protect the programme from further cuts.
I have also received notice from Senator David Cullinane of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to outline plans to build a palliative care unit in Waterford, the level of State funding committed, the overall cost of the project, whether provision is being made to provide additional staffing resources and a time-frame from the initial build to it becoming operational.
I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to outline progress on the application for permanent recognition by Mol an Óige Steiner National School, Ennistymon, County Clare.
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.
