Business of Seanad.

I have received notice from Senator Bannon that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport to make a statement on the north Longford initiative and future funding of this rural transport service which provides transport for elderly and vulnerable people who otherwise would be isolated and excluded from social contact.

I have also received notice from Senator Ulick Burke of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Finance to indicate why the south Galway drainage project has been discontinued, the amount already committed to the project and how it is proposed to apply the remainder of the €3.5 million originally allocated.

I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
