Business of Seanad

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

The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to clarify the reason the area applied for permission for afforestation in 2011 was 38% down on the 2010 figure and if he is aware that changes made by his Department have directly contributed to this decline.

I regard the matter raised by Senator Mark Daly as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and it will be taken at the conclusion of business.
