I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 27A and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Joan Collins - workers' rights with regard to the announcements of recent job losses, including Xtravision-HMV, Tesco and ESB meter-reading workers; and (2) Deputies Mick Wallace and Clare Daly - allegations of abuse in a foster home in the south east.

The matters raised by Deputies Joan Collins, Mick Wallace and Clare Daly have been selected for discussion.
