I have received notice from Senator Rónán Mullen that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to outline the Government's plans for Galway Hospice Foundation.
I have also received notice from Senator Colm Burke of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to outline the up-to-date position on the provision of urological services for children who have spina bifida and hydrocephalus; and if arrangements have been made for a consultant paediatric urologist to travel from the United Kingdom on a monthly basis to provide the necessary clinical support in Ireland.
I have also received notice from Senator Fidelma Healy Eames of the following matter:
To ask the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to rename the new constituency, currently proposed to be called Galway West, to Galway West-South Mayo to reflect and respect the new intake of population from south Mayo.
I have also received notice from Senator Paschal Mooney of the following matter:
To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to outline the reason for the exclusion of game hunting from grant aid provided by Fáilte Ireland in the promotion of Ireland as a tourist destination; the reason the exclusion was recently added to the policy conditions for grand aid; and if he can further outline the reason the National Association of Regional Game Councils has been refused financial support for a gathering of delegates from the Federation of Associations of Hunting and Conservation in the European Union due to take place on 21 March.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Rónán Mullen and Colm Burke as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret that I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Fidelma Healy Eames as it is anticipatory of the debate on the Electoral (Amendment) (Dáil Constituencies) Bill 2012 which is being taken this afternoon. I also regret that I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Paschal Mooney as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter.
