Mr. P. Breen: I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: that the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment immediately reviews his policy on seizing the enterprise functions of Shannon Free Airport Development Company in view of the recent reports that it expects to create 1,000 jobs in the Shannon region over the next six months while IDA Ireland only created seven jobs in new companies in County Clare over the past five years.
