Adjournment Debate Matters.

I 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 Jimmy Deenihan — the urgent need for the HSE to provide a digital mammography machine at Kerry General Hospital to replace the machine that was decommissioned in March 2009; (2) Deputy P. J. Sheehan — following the publication of details of the report by the Dublin office of Teamwork Management Services entitled A Review of Acute Services in the HSE South, which is reported to recommend having one regional centre of excellence for acute care based in Cork city, at the Cork University Hospital site and that the other five hospitals in the Cork-Kerry region, including Bantry, will be downgraded to non-acute local centres of excellence, if the Minister for Health and Children will publish this report in full rather than waiting until four days after the people of this region have voted in the local and European elections, and if she will state her views on this report and confirm that a consultant surgeon will be employed and based in Bantry Hospital after the present consultant's contract is completed later this year; (3) Deputy Frank Feighan — to ask the Minister for Education and Science to ensure a special needs class of 11 pupils, which has been put out of Enterprise Centre in Drumshanbo, County Leitrim because of health and safety problems, is given priority for funding to relocate in the Marion College in Mohill, which is now vacant and in which the VEC is willing to accommodate the class; (4) Deputy James Bannon — the need for the Minister for Education and Science to reconsider the decision to suppress the eighth mainstream teacher post in the convent primary school, Rochfortbridge, County Westmeath from September 2009; (5) Deputy Olwyn Enright — the provision of special needs classes at St. Brendan's boys' national school and Mercy primary school, Birr, County Offaly; (6) Deputy Brian O'Shea — the equipping of a new community hospital, Dungarvan and the demolition of the St. Vincent's District Hospital, County Waterford; (7) Deputy Pat Breen — the need for the Minister for Education and Science to clarify the future of adult psychology services in County Clare, where three full-time psychologist positions are being terminated at the Brothers of Charity in Ennis; (8) Deputy Seymour Crawford — the provision of substitute home help to replace carers who are temporarily absent; and (9) Deputy David Stanton — the need to develop policy regarding the prevention and diagnosis of foetal alcohol syndrome and improve supports for the children affected and their parents.

The matters raised by Deputies O'Shea, Crawford, Stanton and Enright have been selected for discussion.
