An Cathaoirleach: Information on Brian Mullooly  Zoom on Brian Mullooly  I have notice from Senator Costello that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to ensure that the crèche and pre-school in Saint Laurence O'Toole's primary school, Seville Place, Dublin 1, remains open while the school is being refurbished.

I have also received notice from Senator Taylor-Quinn of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Health and Children immediately to provide funding to the Mid-Western Health Board to allow the Stella Maris nursing home in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare, to re-open.

I have also received notice from Senator Caffrey of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment and Local Government to expedite approval for the Ballina town, County Mayo, water supply scheme, stage 3, in view of [2] the fact that there is a serious shortfall of water in Ballina town, and there is a need for pipe replacement and a new reservoir.

I have also received notice from Senator Cassidy of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment and Local Government to increase the retirement age for fire service employees.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Costello, Taylor-Quinn and Caffrey as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected Senator Costello's and Taylor-Quinn's matters and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Caffrey may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.

I regret that I have had to rule Senator Cassidy's matter out of order on the grounds of lack of ministerial responsibility.
