I have received notice from Senator Denis Landy that, on the motion for the Commencement of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:



The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to provide a detailed report on a county by county basis on the number of derelict sites on the records of each local authority, the number of these sites that are being charged an annual levy, how much money is being collected on a county by county basis and the number of derelict sites in the ownership of local authorities and how these particular sites are treated under the Derelict Sites Act.
I have also received notice from Senator Darragh O'Brien of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to make a statement on the proposed reassignment from surgical duties of the Hardwicke ward in Beaumont Hospital.
I have also received notice from Senator Colm Burke of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Justice and Equality to introduce a scheme of reimbursement for travel expenses and other out-of-pocket expenses incurred by persons who are called for jury service and who subsequently serve on juries.
I have also received notice from Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh of the following matter:
An gá atá ann go dtabharfaidh an tAire Oideachais agus Scileanna soiléiriú ar cén uair atá a Roinn chun an maoiniú is gá a chur ar fáil chun na háiseanna agus na seomraí breise atá ag teastáil a chur ar fáil ag an scoil ag Tí Nan Dooley ar an gCeathrú Rua, i gContae na Gaillimhe, chun gur féidir leo an curaclam iomlán a chur ar fáil do na daltaí ansin.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion and they will be taken now.
