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 Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office.

Under Standing Order 32 I seek to adjourn the House in order to debate the need to revisit the lost at sea issue and act on the Ombudsman's report in order to discover the circumstances in which some individuals were granted compensation while other families such as the Byrne family from County Donegal were turned down in circumstances which have not yet been fully investigated; and to examine the roles in the dispensation of compensation of those who were responsible for drafting, administering and overseeing the original scheme.

Ba mhaith liom cead a fháil an Dáil a chur ar athló chun déileáil le gnó rí-thábhachtach ar a bhfuil gá le díospóireacht a dhéanamh. Is é sin the urgent need for the Government to deliver on its promise to close unsuitable psychiatric institutions, improve access to modern mental health services in the community and implement A Vision for Change; to this end, the Government must now produce a fully costed step by step plan, including a timeframe. Responsibility must be clearly allocated for each action. Mental health has been ignored by Governments for too long and the new Government must treat it as a real priority.

Having considered the matters raised, unfortunately I must announce that they are not in accordance with Standing Order 32.
