Business of Seanad.
An Cathaoirleach: I have received notice from Senator Browne that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Transport to make a statement on the progress of the national road network including cost projections, overruns and projected completion times as promised in the national development plan.
I have also received notice from Senator Leyden of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to review the decision of a three year capping period and not mainstreaming community employment jobs; and if she will make a statement on the matter.
I have also received notice from Senator Minihan of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to outline the current position regarding the future of the Cork School of Music in view of the Taoiseach's comments in Cork on Thursday, 26 June and the efforts that are being made to ensure completion of the new school of music during Cork's year as European capital of culture in 2005.
I have also received notice from Senator Bannon of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources to outline his proposals to rectify television reception in the south Longford-Roscommon-Lanesboro area as RTÉ 1, Network 2 and T na G have not been visible for the past four months in the area.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Browne, Minihan and Leyden as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret that I have to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Bannon as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter.
Mr. Bannon: He takes the licence fee all the same.
