An Ceann Comhairle: Before coming to the Order of Business, I propose to deal with two related notices under Standing Order 31 from Deputies Owen and Wright. I propose to call on the Deputies in the order in which they submitted notices to my office. I call first on Deputy Owen.
Mrs. Owen: I seek the Adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following matter of urgent public importance: the loss of 750 jobs at Motorola, Swords, County Dublin; the circumstances surrounding the job losses; how long the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment has known of the impending job losses; and the steps she intends to take to remedy the situation.
Mr. Wright: I seek the Adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following matter of public interest which requires urgent consideration: the announcement yesterday at Motorola, Swords, of the loss of 750 jobs and the urgent need for a special task force to bring further new employment opportunities to the area.
