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

The need for the Minister for Foreign Affairs to clarify if the Government supports the position of the Dutch parliamentary committees on European and foreign affairs which oppose Serbia's accession to the European Union until certain war criminals (details supplied) are handed over to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

I have also received notice from Senator Niall Ó Brolcháin of the following matter:

The need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Education and Skills to provide a new secondary school in Claregalway, County Galway.

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

The need for the Minister for Transport to give an update in respect of the N2-A5 road and the current status of this project further to the most recent North-South Ministerial Council meeting.

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

The need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Education and Skills, in view of the over-capacity and ongoing demand for school places, to outline the current status of the application for new accommodation, including the timeframe for delivery, at Calasanctius College, Oranmore, County Galway.

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

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to clarify the size, space and other requirements for disabled access toilets in public and private buildings.

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

The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to initiate a debate with the relevant stakeholders and the European Commission on the possibility of redeveloping a sugar beet industry in Ireland.

I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Mooney, Ó Brolcháin and Keaveney and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. The other Senators may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise.
