Vol. 622 No. 4

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 seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to discuss a matter of national importance and concern, namely, the recent developments in respect of the Dublin port tunnel, where contaminated waste is being dumped at Fairview Park, 261 homes have been damaged along the tunnel's route and another 120 negotiations are taking place; and for the Minister for Transport to urgently do something to protect our park, staff and people's homes.

I request the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to raise a specific matter of local and national importance requiring urgent attention, namely, the need for the Government to immediately implement the recommendations of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Communications, Marine and Natural Resources on the prevention of the erection of equipment creating electromagnetic or radio emissions, including telephone mast transmitters near health centres, schools, densely populated areas and other sensitive sites, such as playgrounds and pitches; and to ask the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources to make a statement on the matter.

Having considered the matters raised I do not consider them to be in order under Standing Order 31.
