Seanad Éireann Debate
The need for the Minister for Education to extend higher education grants to the small minority of students who, while not meeting formal academic requirements, are admitted  to third level institutions on the grounds of mature years.
The need for the Minister for Justice to review the case of a prisoner in Arbour Hill (name supplied) with a view to exercising his ministerial prerogative of commuting the sentence in the light of its comparative severity taking into account the circumstances of the case.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Murphy, Norris and Ross as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected Senator Murphy's and it will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senators Norris and Ross may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise.
