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 Public Expenditure and Reform to make a statement on whether the public spending code ensures the taxpayer is getting value for money from publicly funded projects.

I have also received notice from Senator Victor Boyhan of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health to make a statement on the campaign by the Neurological Alliance of Ireland for 100 additional neurology nurse specialists throughout Ireland, including at St. Vincent's University Hospital, Dublin.

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

The need for the Minister for Health to make a statement on the national roll-out of first responder training to all Garda districts, including the provision by the National Ambulance Service of automated external defibrillators, AEDs, to all Garda vehicles.

I have also received notice from Senators Aisling Dolan and Micheál Carrigy of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education to make a statement on the most recent consultation with the advisory group on planning for State examinations 2022.

I have also received notice from Senator Garret Ahearn of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage to establish a centralised human resources system to deal with serious disciplinary issues within local authorities.

I have also received notice from Senator Martin Conway of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to introduce a requirement that applicants for tree felling licenses be subject to a road condition survey.

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

The need for the Minister for Justice to ensure that the Stardust inquest will be held before a jury.

I have also received notice from Senator Emer Currie of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health to make a statement and provide an update on the implementation of the report on the national psychology project team on the establishment of a national psychology placement office and workforce planning.

Of the matters raised by the Senators suitable for discussion, I have selected Senators Lombard, Boyhan, Gallagher and Dolan and Carrigy, who will be sharing their time, and they will be taken now. I regret that I had to rule out of order the matters raised by Senators Ahearn and Boylan on the ground that the relevant Ministers have no official responsibility in those areas. The other Senators may give notice on another day of the matters that they wish to raise.
