In view of the continued dissatisfaction among former employees of Irish Shipping, the need for the Minister to outline (a) the number of meetings he had with them in the last year, (b) any planned future meetings, and (c) his plans to respond to representation regarding their position.

I also received notice from Senator Cosgrave of the following matter:
The need for clarification by the Minister for Education in relation to the purchase of Carysfort College having regard to comments made in the report of the Comptroller and Auditor General.
I regard the matters raised by Senators Mooney, Ross, Manning, Jackman, Raftery and Cosgrave as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected Senator Mooney's matter and it will be taken at the conclusion of business. Senators Ross, Manning, Jackman, Raftery and Cosgrave may give notice another day of the matters they which to raise.
I regret I have to rule the matter raised by Senator O'Keeffe as not suitable for discussion on the Adjournment on the grounds of lack of ministerial responsibility.
