Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 32.

Anois, iarratais chun tairisceana a dhéanamh an Dáil a chur ar athló faoi Bhuan Ordú 32. Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a number of notices under Standing Order 32.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of urgent national importance, namely, the need for the Government to introduce legislation to regulate management companies that are ripping off mortgage holders in new apartment and housing complexes. In light of the increasing job losses and rising home repossessions, the Government must protect mortgage holders from management companies that impose exorbitant fees and must ensure that responsibility for the maintenance of new complexes is handed over to local authorities within a reasonable timeframe.

I wish to seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order No. 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the shameful lack of after-care services for young people who leave the care of the State at the age of 18 years and are regarded as capable of independent living, without preparation or follow-up services. The majority of these young people end up homeless, involved in drugs and crime, or in detention centres within six months of leaving care.

Tar éis breithnithe a dhéanamh ar na nitheardaithe, níl siad in ord faoi Bhuan Ordú 32. The matters raised are not in order under Standing Order 32.
