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.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to discuss a matter of major public importance, namely, the imminent cuts to special needs assistants working in schools and the implications the current Government's policy is having on schools such as St. Mark's junior national school in Springfield in Tallaght which has had its SNA allocation cut from 13 to 6.5, a reduction of 50%, which, combined with a possible loss of language support teachers, will have a major impact on the lives of children with special educational needs and behavioural difficulties.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to discuss a matter of national importance, namely, the death from hypothermia of Rachel Peavoy in Ballymun in January 2010. There was a coroner's report which was an insufficient way to deal with the matter.

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