Acting Chairman

I wish to advise the House that nine Deputies have submitted matters under Standing Order 21, which are listed as follows: (1) Deputy Gogarty – the need for the Minister to police non-compliance with the Universities Act or amend the Act so that non-compliance can be monitored and policed by an independent body; (2) Deputy Finian McGrath – the serious staffing situation in Belgrove senior boys' school, Clontarf, Dublin 3; (3) Deputy Neville – the provision of a new school for Kilfinane, County Limerick; (4) Deputy Morgan – the need for the Minister for Health and Children to address the unacceptable situation whereby the five day ward at Louth County Hospital is to be closed for the summer; (5) Deputy Ferris – the urgent need to discuss the €100,000 cut in funding for Partnership Tralee and the implications which this will have for the support of various local initiatives; (6) Deputy Cowley – the need to take steps for a pupil with very special needs (details supplied) to attend Cuilmore national school – An Choil Mhor; (7) Deputy Deenihan – the reduction in services by Partnership Tralee because of cuts of 20% in its CE programme, a cut of €100,000 in its annual budget and the resulting hardship that these cuts are causing for many deserving individuals and communities in Tralee; (8) Deputy McGuinness – the urgent need to strengthen existing legislation to assist local authorities in the crack-down on illegal dumping; and (9) Deputy Broughan – the urgent need to resolve problems created by poor architectural designs at local authority estates in Dublin city and Fingal and specifically with regard to shared parking areas at Seagrange Estate, Baldoyle, Dublin 13.
