Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Lorraine Clifford-Lee that, on the motion for the Commencement of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to ring-fence funding as part of the greenway strategy for the development of the Broadmeadow Way greenway.

I have also received notice from Senator Máire Devine of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to outline the plans in place following the collapse of the construction firm MDY, in particular regarding Dolphin Park senior citizens' unit, and the primary care centre, both in Rialto, Dublin 8.

I have also received notice from Senator Robbie Gallagher of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to provide an update on the status of his Department’s review of councillors' terms and conditions.

I have also received notice from Senator Maura Hopkins of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to provide an update on plans to develop a greenway between Athlone, County Westmeath, and Ballinasloe, County Galway.

I have also received notice from Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education and Skills to review the remit and practices of the State Examinations Commission in light of recent marking inaccuracies and the High Court judgment.

The matters raised by the Senators are suitable for discussion. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Clifford-Lee, Devine and Gallagher and they will be taken now. Senator Hopkins has withdrawn her Commencement matter which I had selected. Senator Ó Ríordáin may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
