Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Tim Lombard that, on the motion for the Commencement of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to make a statement on the upgrade of the N71 road between Bishopstown and Castletownbere in Cork.

I have also received notice from Senator Lynn Ruane of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs to make a statement on the relocation of family support services from the F2 Fatima Centre, Dublin 8.

The matters raised by the Senators are suitable for discussion and Senator Lombard's matter will be taken now. Senator Ruane has withdrawn her matter, which I had originally selected.
