Senator Victor Boyhan - The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to make a statement on plans for a new farmers' charter of rights.

Senator Malcolm Byrne - The need for the Minister for Education to provide an update on the pilot school bus schemes to be introduced on foot of the recommendations contained in the School Transport 2030 review.

Senator Fiona O'Loughlin - The need for the Minister for Education to make a statement on the progress of the new school building for St. Anne's special school in the Curragh, County Kildare.
