Business of Seanad.

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

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to progress the building of a new national school at Rathcormac, County Cork.

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

The need for the Minister for Health and Children to outline the time schedule for the fit-out of the health care equipment and beds at the new unit of St. Joseph's Hospital, Dungarvan, County Waterford, and when it is proposed to have the unit fully equipped, staffed and opened for the care of patients.

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

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to address the situation where hundreds of customers of Donegal County Council are paying over 10% in interest on loans from the local authority and to outline how he intends to rectify this.

I have also received notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to clarify if a person has the right to reapply for planning permission at the same location with two enforcement notices against an applicant not yet complied with.

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

The need for the Minister for Transport to give a date on which the Rathconnell to Turin bypass in County Westmeath will be open.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Bradford, Coffey, Doherty and Healy Eames as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. The matters raised by Senators Bradford, Coffey and Doherty will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Healy Eames may give notice on another day of the matter she wishes to raise. I regret that I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator McFadden, as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter, which is one for the NRA.
