Business of Seanad.

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

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to review planning guidelines to incorporate traffic control measures in all new housing developments, and furthermore to establish a funding stream to local authorities to allow for the construction of traffic calming measures in established housing developments and built up areas.

I have also received notice from Senator O'Meara of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Social and Family Affairs to agree a compensation package for a group of former workers at Ballingarry Mines, Thurles, County Tipperary, due to their permanent and increasing incapacity, resulting from conditions while working in the mine.

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

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to provide an up-date on the provision of a temporary teacher for St. Mary's national school, Drumlish, County Longford, a position which is urgently required to take account of the increased enrolment at this four teacher school.

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.
