Vol. 407 No. 4

Adjournment Debate Matters.

I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given to me under Standing Order 20(3) (a) and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy John Browne (Wexford)— The closure of wards and the loss of jobs in St. Senan's Hospital, Enniscorthy, County Wexford; (2) Deputy Boylan— The anomaly regarding mulder quota and suckler grants, whereby a farmer seeking to retain a mulder quota in 1989 is being required to refund his suckler grant for that year; (3) Deputy Flanagan—The need to review and relax the strict criteria applied by the Minister for the Environment towards the construction by local authorities of isolated rural cottages; (4) Deputy Fennell — the funding crisis of the AIM Group Centre for Family Law, which is facing imminent closure; (5) Deputy McCartan—The industrial dispute involving the news room staff at Capital Radio in Dublin; (6) Deputy Gilmore—The repeated concerns expressed by District Justice Wine of the Dún Laoghaire court, about the lack of a remedial detention centre for young offenders, in view of the rising incidence of Juvenile crime in the Dún Laoghaire area; (7) Deputy Deenihan—The crisis faced by many national youth organisations because of the decrease in their grant allocation for 1991; (8) Deputy Allen—If the Minister for Tourism, Transport and Communications will take steps to prevent the Bank of Ireland from posting Access credit card statements from an address in Great Britain, thereby depriving the Irish postal services of much needed revenue; (9) Deputy Therese Ahearn—The appalling conditions which currently prevail at Ardfinnan national school in South Tipperary and the urgency of the long-promised extensions to the school; (10) Deputy Spring—The new measures the Minister for Agriculture and Food proposes to implement to combat the use of angel dust; and (11) Deputy Gregory—The educational disadvantage in Dublin's north inner city with specific reference to the Central Model School, Marlborough Street, Dublin 1, where the school has been housed in prefabs for nearly nine years.

I selected for discussion the matters raised by Deputies Spring, Gilmore and Flanagan.
