I have notice from Senator Kieran O'Donnell that, on the motion for the Commencement of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Justice and Equality to provide an update on the redeployment of gardaí from court security to front-line policing duties, as recommended in the report of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland.

I have also received notice from Senator Anthony Lawlor of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to publish the proposed planning guidelines for wind turbines.

I have also received notice from Senator Jennifer Murnane O'Connor of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to make a statement on differences in local authority rent caps for adjoining counties.

I have also received notice from Senator Robbie Gallagher of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health to allocate funding to home care packages to assist families in keeping their loved ones in care at home.

I have also received notice from Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to provide an update on the provision of the new school building at Moville community college, County Donegal.

The matters raised by the Senators are suitable for discussion. I have selected Senators O’Donnell's, Lawlor's and Murnane O’Connor's matters and they will be taken now. Senator Gallagher has withdrawn his Commencement matter which I had originally selected. Senator Mac Lochlainn may give notice on another day of the matter that he wishes to raise.
