An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Joe Jacob Zoom on Joe Jacob I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 20 and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Frances Fitzgerald — the question of funding the organisation named Positively Irish Action on AIDS; (2) Deputy Geoghegan-Quinn — the action which will be taken by the Minister for Health in the light of a discovery of documents which indicated that the Blood Transfusion Service Board knew that plasma had been accepted from a donor who had been diagnosed as suffering from infective hepatitis, the reason this information was not uncovered during the investigation into the hepatitis C controversy in 1994 and the implications of this matter for the ad hoc compensation tribunal; (3) Deputy Keogh — the need for a statutory code of practice to regulate the care of children with disabilities; (4) Deputy Shortall — the need to tackle illegal drug dealers by establishing a special unit involving the Garda Síochána, the Revenue Commissioners and the Department of Social Welfare; and (5) Deputy Séamus Brennan — the implications for Telecom Éireann following the closure of the bids for the strategic alliance process and the recent changes in relation to the derogation on competition.

The matters raised by Deputies Frances Fitzgerald, Geoghegan-Quinn, [1454] Keogh and Séamus Brennan have been selected for discussion.
