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



The need for the Minister for Health to engage with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland with a view to resolving the long delays that currently exist in the registration process.
I have also received notice from Senator Diarmuid Wilson of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation to address urgently the loss of jobs announced by Liberty Insurance in Cavan, Enniskillen and Dublin.
I have also received notice from Senator Averil Power of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to develop a comprehensive strategy for Howth Harbour that maximises its potential not only as a fishing harbour, but also as a tourism, sports, leisure and community resource, and for the Department to avoid taking steps, such as the proposed introduction of paid parking, that would seriously undermine the harbour's overall benefit to the local economy and community.
I have also received notice from Senator Higgins of the following matter:


The need for the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources to explore additional funding streams for the roll-out of natural gas in areas of strategic importance.
I have also received notice from Senator Bradford of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to outline the effort being made by Ireland and its eurozone partners to ensure that Greece will remain a member of the eurozone.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Burke, Wilson, Power and Higgins and they will be taken now. Senator Bradford may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
