Order of Business
Snippet Contents:

The Senator also referred to housing density. This is a matter we should discuss with the Minister of State with responsibility for housing. I will try to arrange a debate on the overall housing sector which could contemplate the issue of rent controls, to which Senator Gerard P. Craughwell referred. Such a debate is overdue.
Senator Terry Brennan welcomed the allocation of funding under the minor works scheme to tackle problems at some accident black spots and other road safety issues.
Senator John Gilroy referred to the record of various parties represented on councils on the issue of homelessness.
Senator James Heffernan questioned the role of the Environmental Protection Agency in the case of a site in Askeaton. I suggest he table an Adjournment matter to obtain a reply to his specific query.
Senator Paschal Mooney referred to the Government's marketing plans to attract visitors to the houses of Seán Mac Diarmada and Thomas MacDonagh. I will raise this matter with the relevant Minister. I am sure Fáilte Ireland also has a role to play in it.
Senator Mary White referred to the issue of rent supplement. It is one of the only issues on which I would disagree with Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy who stated the problem of homelessness would be solved if rent supplement was increased. If it were to be increased, landlords would raise rents again.
Senator John Crown proposed an amendment to the Order of Business on obstetric care and the need to employ more obstetricians. As the Senator is aware, advertisements have appeared in the newspapers to fill vacant obstetrician posts in many hospitals. As stated, the Minister for Health was before the House only a couple of weeks ago when we engaged with him in a comprehensive debate on the health service. I do not know if the issue about which the Senator is concerned was raised at that point.
Senator Michael Mullins referred to the provision of information technology services within HSE hospital groups and the suggestion that the tendering process in this regard might have been flawed in some way. As the Cathaoirleach mentioned, I suggest the Senator raise the matter on the Adjournment to obtain a reply from the Minister to his specific query.
