Business of Seanad

I have received notice from Senator Maria Corrigan that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Justice and Law Reform to give an update on the introduction of new mental capacity and guardianship legislation, given its critical importance to the well-being and regard for the rights of vulnerable adults.

I have also received notice from Senator Diarmuid Wilson of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation to protect employment in Quinn Insurance Limited in light of the proposed sale of the company.

I have also received notice from Senator Jim Walsh of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to state when legislation will be enacted to require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in homes given the many fatal accidents arising from carbon monoxide poisoning in homes.

I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, in light of the recent announcement on cross-Border co-operation on the digital changeover, to address the specific issue of how changes will support Moville, County Donegal.

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 the future plans for all training centres of Fáilte Ireland located in Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Corrigan, Wilson and Walsh as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret I have had to rule out of order the matters raised by Senator Keaveney and Senator Buttimer as the respective Ministers have no official responsibility in the matters.
