I wish to advise the House that eight Deputies have submitted matters under Standing Order 21: (1) Deputy Joe Costello — the ongoing operation of the Private Security Authority and the review of its licensing procedures; (2) Deputy Thomas P. Broughan — the urgent need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to fully report to Dáil Éireann on the sale of landing gear and APU assets at the SR Technics operation in Dublin Airport, given the fast approaching company deadlines for receipt of bids for the base maintenance, line maintenance and garage operations at SR Technics; if the Tánaiste will also outline to the Dail what actions she, the Taoiseach and IDA Ireland are taking to facilitate the remaining expressions of interest in the SR Technics facility and to maintain the 1,200 critical jobs and the centre of aviation engineering and maintenance excellence at Dublin Airport; and if she will make a statement on the matter; (3) Deputy Chris Andrews — the concerns raised recently about the removal of certain facilities (details provided) in the Ringsend area, which affects elderly people in the area and their ability to collect social welfare payments; to ask the Minister if anything can be done to reverse this; (4) Deputy Bernard J. Durkan — the awarding of a higher education grant to a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; (5) Deputy Dinny McGinley — the loss of jobs at James Likely Limited, Ballyshannon, County Donegal.
