An Cathaoirleach: Information on Paddy Burke Zoom on Paddy Burke I have received notice from Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter:

Go dtabharfaidh an tAire Sláinte soiléiriú an bhfuil i gceist aige, i bhfianaise an dul chun cinn atá déanta ó thaobh eolaíochta agus cóir leighis de, an bhfuil sé i gceist aige airtríteas réamatóideach a chur ar an liosta de thinnis fhadtéarmacha atá incháilithe nuair atá duine ag déanamh iarratais ar charta leighis.

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

The need for the Minister for Finance to outline the protocols or contract stipulations, if any, that are in place to stop NAMA employees moving into the private sector immediately following their employment with the agency.

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

The need for the Minister of Finance to instruct the Revenue Commissioners to accept the local property tax payment via standing order.

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

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to discuss the recommendations of the local electoral area boundary committee report, and in particular the recommendation to divide the town of Carrigaline, County Cork in two parts between Carrigaline-Ballincollig local electoral area, LEA, and Bandon-Kinsale LEA, and to reconsider this recommendation in advance of legislating for boundary changes within local authorities.

I regard the matters raised by the Senators as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and they will be taken at the conclusion of business.
