Vol. 284 No. 10

Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Erin McGreehan that, on the motion for the Commencement of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications to make a statement on the deposit return scheme.

I have also received notice from Senators Maria Byrne and Martin Conway of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health to make a statement on overcrowding at University Hospital Limerick.

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

The need for the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage to make a statement on the funding of local government projects through municipal bonds.

I have also received notice from Senator Malcolm Byrne of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Foreign Affairs to make a statement on the process of appointment of Irish ambassadors.

I have also received notice from Senator Barry Ward of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage to make a statement on compliance with the EU bathing water directives and when bathing water regulations will be amended to allow local authorities to change the length of the bathing season.

I have also received notice from Senator Jerry Buttimer of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Transport to establish an aviation recovery plan for the post-pandemic environment.

I have also received notice from Senator Timmy Dooley of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth to make a statement on co-ordinating a rapid response to the health and education needs of Ukrainian refugees.

I have also received notice from Senator Tim Lombard of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education to make a statement on plans to introduce mandatory teacher training on dyslexia.

Of the matters raised by the Senators suitable for discussion, I have selected Senators McGreehan, Maria Byrne and Martin Conway, who are sharing time, Boyhan and Malcolm Byrne, and they will be taken now. I regret that I had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Dooley on the ground that it anticipates the statements on humanitarian support for Ukrainian refugees, which is scheduled to take place in the Seanad on Wednesday, 23 March 2022. The other Senators may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise.
