Business of Dáil

On behalf of the Government, I have been asked to inform the House that three Topical Issue matters have been deferred until next week. The first, on education, was tabled by Deputies Creighton and Mathews, who I understand have agreed to resubmit it next Tuesday, when the Minister from the relevant Department will be available to deal with it. The second and third Topical Issue matters concern health and are also to be deferred. The second is in the name of Deputies Kieran O'Donnell and Pat Breen, and the third is in the name of Deputy Robert Troy. I understand the Deputies have agreed to resubmit their matters next Wednesday, when the Minister will be available.

Is that agreed? Agreed. Does the Minister have any information on the fourth Topical Issue matter?

I understand the transport issue raised by Deputy Dessie Ellis is to be deferred until next Tuesday. I presume that is in order, because the Deputy is not present. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The Dáil adjourned at 2.05 p.m. until 10 a.m. on Friday, 3 October 2014.
