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 Foreign Affairs and Trade to arrange for short-term fostering of Syrian refugee children by Irish host families until the situation in their homeland improves.

I have also received notice from Senator Mark Daly of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to ensure county councils issue a certificate of discharge and exemption in order that people have certainty that no liability for the non-principal private residence charge from previous years will arise in respect of derelict properties.

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.
