I have notice from Senator John Paul Phelan that, on the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to give an update on the provision of funding for a new building for Coláiste Pobail Osraí, Cill Chainnigh, and when it is anticipated that engineers will visit the site proposed by the board of management.
I have also received notice from Senator Shane Ross of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to implement the programme for Government in regard to class sizes in both primary and secondary schools, reducing pupil-teacher ratio to the appropriate level of 24 pupils per teacher.
I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Foreign Affairs to clarify the efforts that are being made to overcome bigotry and sectarianism in an all-Ireland context given the recent television documentaries which outline the intensification of these activities post the Good Friday Agreement.
I regard the matters raised as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
