Dáil Éireann - Volume 598 - 22 February, 2005

Requests to Move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.

  An Ceann Comhairle:Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with several [261] notices under Standing Order 31. I will call the Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office.

  Mr. Sargent:I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the need to identify the Government’s view of, and response to, the evidence and intelligence gathered in connection with the Garda recovery of large amounts of Northern Irish currency in Cork and other centres, and to determine why the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform stated two months ago that there was no IRA criminality in the Republic.

  Mr. Morgan:I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the lack of suitable accommodation for Traveller families, the failure of the Traveller accommodation plans adopted by local authorities to deliver on targets set for the provision of Traveller accommodation and the necessity for the Minister of State with responsibility for housing at the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to consider this seriously.

  Mr. Neville:I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to debate the following urgent matter: the announcement today by Castlemahon Foods, County Limerick, of the loss of 150 jobs, the loss of 35 jobs at O’Reilly vegetable distributors in Newcastle West and of 26 jobs at Drumcolliher engineering which, with the recent closure of Kantoher poultry with a loss of 140 jobs, will have a serious economic consequence for west Limerick requiring Government to direct State agencies to replace these jobs immediately.

  An Ceann Comhairle:Having considered the matters raised, they are not in order under Standing Order 31.
