Vol. 226 No. 4

Business of Seanad

I have notice from Senator Mary Ann O'Brien that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health to put in place a special system to enable the births of babies in need of palliative care to be registered in the hospital of their birth, due to the unnecessary burden being placed on the parents of these acutely ill children in having to travel to local offices to register the birth and, as a consequence, the delay encountered in accessing State services such as medical cards and nursing supports.

I regard the matter raised by the Senator as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and it will be taken at the conclusion of business.
