I also received notice from Senator Avril Doyle of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Finance to immediately outline the future employment prospects for all our customs officers in the light of the free trade position in the EC from 1 January 1993, and in regard to his recent announcement concerning the introduction of automatic entry processing and direct trades input on 1 January 1993.
 I also received notice from Senator Joe Costello of the following matter:

I also received notice from Senator David Norris of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Health in the light of the recent resignation of the Chairman of the Health Research Board, due to unexpected arbitrary budgetary constraints imposed in the Estimates to look urgently at the possibility of providing future and adequate funding so that this important body can carry out its work in the national interest.
I also received notice from Senator Pat Upton of the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Education to alleviate the serious overcrowding in Scoil Iosagáin, Aughavanagh Road, Dublin.

I regard the matters raised by Senators McMahon, Ó Foighil, Doyle, Costello, Norris, Upton, Ross and Cosgrave as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matter raised by Senator McMahon and it will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senators Norris, Ó Foighil, Doyle, Costello, Upton, Ross and Cosgrave may give notice on another day of the matters they wish to raise.
