Adjournment Debate Matters.

I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 21 and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Gilmore — the continuing failure to address the need for a permanent school building for the Monkstown Educate Together national school; (2) Deputy Crawford — the situation where the Department of Agriculture and Food insists on buying out the total herd where an individual animal is found with BSE; (3) Deputy O'Sullivan — the need for the Minister to fulfil the commitment to build a new school at Aghina, Macroom, County Cork, in view of its listing under "proceed to construction" in the 2003 schools building programme and in view of the cost savings achieved in accordance with the conditions of approval; (4) Deputy Durkan — the failure to provide sufficient funding to facilitate the employment of adequate staff at Naas General Hospital; (5) Deputy Boyle — to ask the Minister to respond to concerns following the discovery of a 45-gallon drum of toxic waste discovered on the roadside in Ringaskiddy, County Cork, on 22 March; whether he is able to assure the residents of this area that necessary protective measures are in place to prevent the discovery of further hazardous waste; and whether he can guarantee that incidents of this type will become less prevalent should a national toxic waste incinerator be located in this area; (6) Deputy Morgan — the implications for the partnership process of the statement by the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment that she will collapse the coalition Government if the break-up of CIE and the privatisation of transport services does not go ahead; (7) Deputy O'Dowd — the findings of the European Commission to impose binding measures on the UK operator, British Nuclear Fuels plc, which has failed to comply with the provisions of the EURATOM Treaty and the rules concerning accounting for nuclear material at Sellafield, which is currently held in an area of high level radiation and poor visibility, and that the situation has now become untenable and calls into question the credibility of safeguards designed to ensure that nuclear material is not diverted from peaceful uses; (8) Deputy Cowley — the reason a person (details supplied) assessed as "moderate Down's syndrome" has been refused entry to St. Dymphna's special school, Ballina; (9) Deputy Broughan — the urgent need for the Dublin city manager to withdraw a proposed material contravention, by executive function, to rezone St. Anne's Park, Raheny, Dublin 5 — Dublin city's premier park — for an industrial waste management process and large industrial premises; (10) Deputy Deenihan — the urgent need to provide adequate and appropriate accommodation for the pupils of Dromclough national school, Listowel, County Kerry; (11) Deputy Shortall — the imminent closure of City Lodge, run by the South Western Area Health Board, and the serious implications of this for a 17 year old (details supplied) vulnerable youth and other residents who are currently being successfully cared for in this facility.

The matters raised by Deputies Crawford, Gilmore, Cowley and Durkan have been selected for discussion.
