Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.

Before coming to the Order of Business, I propose to deal with a number of notices under Standing Order 31. I will call on the Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the collapse of the trial of Judge Brian Curtin last week, the reasons the search warrants were not acted upon in the given timeframe and the need to institute a full inquiry into all the circumstances surrounding this case.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the significant public concern which arises from the court case involving a Circuit Court judge, and the need to allay those concerns and clarify all concerns relating to the case and the consequences arising from it.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the failure of the Government's so-called decentralisation programme that is seeing a proposal for Department of Agriculture and Food offices and specialised laboratories in Cork City to be moved to Macroom which is being made without any consultation with the workers involved and seemingly no consideration of the difficulties caused by this proposal to the transport, accommodation and family needs of those who work at this facility.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the abuse of Department of Education and Science resources by the current Minister, the misuse of Civil Service time in preparing customised briefing notes that are specifically marked for the confidential information of candidates of one political party in the upcoming local elections, and whether this is happening at all Departments in the run-up to these elections.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the need in light of the collapse of the Curtin case for the Minister for Justice Equality and Law Reform to make a statement to the House regarding the action that the Government intends to take, what action he has taken to ensure that an adequate system for judges' discipline, education and review is put in place, and whether the Government will invite Judge Curtin to make a statement to the appropriate committee of the House?

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the incessant and sinister predictions of violence in Dublin on next Saturday — May Day and EU enlargement day — emanating from so-called security sources and highlighted in hysterical articles in certain media outlets, whether sources in the Government and the Garda have deliberately generated these rumours to frighten citizens away from exercising their right to peaceful protest, and whether the Government is deliberately setting out to provoke a small element into committing acts of violence to discredit the opposition to aspects of EU policy and to fulfil the Taoiseach's wish that there should be no protest on the occasion of the Bush visit in June by larger gatherings of peaceful protesters.

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to revoke the excavation licenses and challenge the National Roads Authority on the impact of construction of the M3 motorway on an archaeological complex that forms the Hill of Tara, which is a national monument under the National Monuments Act.

Iarraim faoi Bhuan Ordú 31 gnó na Dála a chur ar athló chun iniúchadh a dhéanamh ar an drochscéal faoi chóras uisce an Cheathrú Rua agus cathain agus conas a chaithfear an infheistíocht de €13.2 milliún atá ar fáil chun córas nua uisce a chur ar fáil agus an €3 mhilliún do córas séarachais a chur ar fáil do phobal na háite.

Having considered the matters raised, they are not in order under Standing Order 31.
