Vol. 566 No. 2

Adjournment Debate Matters.

I wish to advise the House that six Deputies have submitted matters under Standing Order 21, as follows: (1) Deputy Pat Breen – the discussions between the Department of Education and Science and Clare VEC regarding St. Michael's community college, Kilmihil, County Clare; (2) Deputy Healy – the urgent need for the Tánaiste and the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to intervene in the continued lay-offs at John Ronan and Sons, Dudleys Mills, Clonmel; (3) Deputy Howlin – the totally inadequate level of midwives at Wexford General Hospital and the danger this shortage poses for delivering a first class service; (4) Deputy Gogarty – the need to suspend Adamstown's designation as a strategic development zone and freeze development pending Government guarantees on the provision of funding for essential internal and external infrastructure; (5) Deputy Naughten – the need for the Minister for Agriculture and Food to rescind his decision to reduce veterinary inspections at meat plants in light of the economic impact which it will have on the rural economy; (6) Deputy Burton – the present situation at the James Connolly Memorial Hospital, Blanchardstown.

The matters raised by Deputies Naughten, Pat Breen, Burton and Gogarty have been selected for discussion.
