Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 32.

Before coming to the Order of Business, I propose to deal with a number of notices under Standing Order 32. I will call on the Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to debate the need for the Minister for Social and Family Affairs to respond to the case made by the Family Resource Centre National Forum on the need to ensure that the proposed cuts to the programme are withdrawn in order to allow the many family resource centres around the country to continue to provide a much-needed and valuable service for the many families who are experiencing difficulties of various kinds, many of them related to unemployment and low income.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to address the closure by the Health Service Executive of the special care unit at Ballydowd, the implications and consequences for the children who are housed in that facility and for wider child care services in the State.

Having considered the matters raised, they are not in order under Standing Order 32.

A Cheann Comhairle, have a heart.
