Business of Seanad.

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

The need for the Minister for Social and Family Affairs to outline the action she will take to address the shortage of community welfare officers in the Dublin 15 area as a result of which the drop-in hours have been suspended and all applications must be in writing or taken over the telephone.

I regard the matter raised by the Senator as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and it will be taken at the conclusion of business.
