An Cathaoirleach: Information on Pat Moylan Zoom on Pat Moylan I have received notice from Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill 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 ensure the BreastCheck service is rolled out in Donegal as quickly as possible.

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

The need for the Minister for Transport to formally commit to a plan to develop a rail line from Sligo to the city of Derry, creating an all-Ireland rail loop.

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

The need for the Minister for Education and Science to clarify the progress on the development of a new school at Rahan, County Cork.

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

The need for the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs to outline the reason the benchmarking pay award has not been paid to some staff (details supplied) who work for local drugs taskforces.

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

The need for the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs to give proper recognition to rehabilitation facilities such as Whiteoaks in Burnfoot, County Donegal which support those at the core of alcohol and drug abuse.

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

The need for the Minister for Health and Children to restore respite beds in St. Laurence Cheshire Home in County Cork.

[1082]I have also received notice from Senator Paschal Donohoe of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism to clarify the reason his Department has made a substantial cut in funding to the national chamber choir for 2008.

I regard the matters raised by Senators Brian Ó Domhnaill, Pearse Doherty, Paul Bradford, Frances Fitzgerald, Cecilia Keaveney and Jerry Buttimer as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Brian Ó Domhnaill, Pearse Doherty and Paul Bradford and they will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senators Frances Fitzgerald, Cecilia Keaveney and Jerry Buttimer may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise. I regret I have had to rule out of order the matter raised by Senator Paschal Donohoe as the Minister has no official responsibility in the matter.
