Business of Seanad.

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

To ask the Minister for Health and Children if she is aware that no additional funding was provided to the HSE, western region, for children under 12 years of age with special needs from the current funding allocation announced recently, as all resources have been allocated for adult support.

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

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to clarify when the sewerage scheme at Shanagolden, County Limerick, will commence as the ongoing delay is having an impact on potential developments in the area.

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

The need for the Minister for Agriculture and Food to provide adequate resources for the full implementation of the national forestry strategy in light of the current EU proposals for funding on forestry post 2006.

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.
