Business of Seanad

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

The need for the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation to discuss the need for immediate, realistic and deliverable proposals to create jobs in Waterford and the south east.

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

The need for the Minister for Health to clarify the rationale for not allowing registered nurse prescribers in the private sector to prescribe using GMS prescription pads.

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

The need for the Minister for Health to immediately restore X-ray services to the community hospitals in Donegal town and Killybegs, County Donegal.

I have also received notice from Senator Thomas Byrne of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to discuss the Slane bypass and its status described by a Government Minister as a top five priority project.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Cullinane, Healy-Eames and Ó Domhnaill 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 Byrne as it is a matter for the NRA.
