Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Rose Conway-Walsh that, on the motion for the Commencement of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to provide an update on the provision of services for people with autism in the west.
I have also received notice from Senator Frank Feighan of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to ensure the necessary funding is secured to upgrade the Dublin-Sligo railway line.
I have also received notice from Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to intervene to repair water pipes in Elm Mount Rise, Beaumont, Dublin 9, which neither Dublin City Council nor Irish Water are willing to take responsibility for.
Of the matters raised by the Senators suitable for discussion, I have selected those of Senators Conway-Walsh and Feighan and they will be taken now. I regret I had to rule out of order the matter submitted by Senator Ó Ríordáin on the ground that the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter.
