Business of Seanad.

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

The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to outline the criteria for the processing and confirming of grant applications under the equal opportunities child care programme.

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

The need for the Minister of State at the Department of Finance to state when the razor wire mounted on the wall surrounding Farmleigh will be removed.

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

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to state when the new primary school will be provided at Kilfinane, County Limerick.

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

The need for the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources to review the role of ALAB.

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

The need for the Minister for Health and Children to clarify if there will be a reduction of 25 beds and staff cuts at the Plunkett nursing home, Boyle, County Roscommon.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Scanlon, Terry and Finucane as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret that I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Feighan as it is repetitious of a similar motion taken on 28 April 2004. Senator McHugh may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
