Seanad Eireann Debate
The need for the Minister for Public Enterprise to examine the replacement of Bellacorrick peat power station, County Mayo, which is due to close in 2005, with a new natural gas fired electricity generating station.
The need for the Minister for the Environment and Local Government to introduce measures to force truck drivers and others to comply with speed limits in view of the high percentage of trucks, relative to the number on the roads, involved in fatal accidents.
The need for the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to ensure that workers on the Whole Time jobs initiative in the north inner city are retained in their current employment pending alternative employment becoming available.
I regard the matters raised by Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Chambers and Caffrey and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Costello may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
