Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Education and Skills to require colleges of teacher education to include a component for pre-service teachers on awareness of fatal allergies which can cause anaphylactic shock in children.

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

The need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Education and Skills to provide additional funding to replace old equipment at Holy Trinity national school, Leopardstown, Dublin 18.

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

The need for the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport to express her views on an international agency to protect sport from all forms of attacks on its integrity such as, for example, match fixing.

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 allow Donegal County Council to recruit a youth council co-ordinator.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Healy Eames and Corrigan as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment 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 Keaveney as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter. I regret that I have also had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Ó Domhnaill as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter.
