I have received notice from Senator David Cullinane 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 to discuss the need for the promised integrated oncology unit and 20-bed palliative care unit at Waterford Regional Hospital.
I have also received notice from Senator John Crown of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health to outline his views on the health implications of people smoking in cars where young children are passengers.
I have also received notice from Senator Kathryn Reilly of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources to discuss the increase in electricity prices being imposed by Bord Gáis and the application by the same company to increase its gas prices.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Cullinane and Crown as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. I regret that I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Reilly, as it is one for the Commission for Energy Regulation.
