Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill 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 set out the current position on the proposed new A5 road from Dublin to Donegal, including the timeframe associated with the project.

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

The need for the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport to make a statement on her plans to reopen the sports capital programme in 2011.

I have also received notice from Senator Ciaran Cannon of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to outline progress on the development of phase 2 of the Loughrea regional water supply scheme, bearing in mind that Galway County Council has indicated it is now ready to produce contract documents for the project.

I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
