Vol. 210 No. 3

Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Deirdre Clune 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, Community and Local Government to instruct local authorities to reduce and-or abolish development charges on a temporary basis as they are a deterrent to development.

I have also received notice from Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh of the following matter:

Ar an ghá don Aire Chomhsaoil Pobail agus Rialtais Aitiúil soléiriú ar stádas na n-oibrithe i Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta, agus cad atá i ndán dóibh ó thaobh dlí de, agus cad atá an Roinn tar éis a dhéanamh, nó atá sé d'intinn don Roinn a dhéanamh, chun leasa agus cearta fostaíochta na n-oibrithe a chosaint.

I have also received notice from Senator Marc MacSharry of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to clarify the situation regarding the upgrade of the N4, between Castlebaldwin and Collooney, County Sligo, to dual carriageway status, in line with the previously stated commitments of the Government.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Clune and Ó Clochartaigh as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator MacSharry as it is a matter for the National Roads Authority.
