Business of Seanad.

I have received notice from Senator Fiona O'Malley that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to discuss progress on the establishment of an independent electoral commission.

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

The need for the Minister for Health and Children to take steps to ease the moratorium to replace retired nursing staff so as to avoid loss of life.

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

The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to ensure in the north west there is further development and the co-ordination of cross-Border sexual assault services.

I have also received notice from Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to introduce emergency regulations to compel all head shops to obtain planning permission.

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

The need for the Minister for Health and Children, in the interests of dental health, to outline the provisions and resources that will be made available to prevent tooth decay under the dental treatment services scheme.

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

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to provide an updated report on the purchase of a site and construction of a new school for Gaelscoil de hÍde, Oranmore, County Galway.

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

The need for the Minister for Transport to ensure the RSA annual seatbelt survey will be extended to include school buses.

I regard the matters raised by Senators O'Malley, McFadden, Keaveney, Ó Domhnaill, Coffey and Healy Eames as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators O'Malley, McFadden and Keaveney 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 Doherty, as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter. The other Senators may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise.
