Business of Seanad

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

The need for the Minister for Social Protection to provide a one-stop-shop to deal with matters relating to the deceased partners of widows and widowers.

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

The need for the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources to outline the meetings he has had recently at North-South level to ensure a smooth transfer to digital television services at the end of the year, particularly in the north west.

I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
