I have received notice from Senator David Norris that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health and Children to reconsider the imposition of the price of registration fees for pharmacists.
I have received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to discuss with his Northern counterpart, the Minister for Employment and Learning, Sir Reg Empey, the rise in student fees proposed by universities in the North and the implications of this for Border students.
I have received notice from Senator Alan Kelly of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education and Science to advance the building programme for Nenagh and Borrisokane vocational schools and explain why both projects have stagnated given the visible and real health and safety issues in both schools.
I have also received notice from Senator Paschal Donohoe of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism to make a statement on any planned consolidation of national art galleries and the implications of such plans on the individual galleries.
I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Norris, Keaveney and Kelly and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senator Donohoe may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
