Business of Seanad.

  An Cathaoirleach: I have notice from Senator Maria Corrigan that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to provide a progress report on the implementation of the requirement for a building energy rating certificate for new buildings for sale and public buildings.

I have also received notice from Senator Jerry Buttimer of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Arts, Sports and Tourism to provide funding for the provision of a new swimming pool in Douglas, Cork, given that Cork City Council has decided to locate the pool, subject to funding from central Government, at its present location.

I have also received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to seek at the forthcoming European fisheries meetings a solution to the unacceptable situation whereby dead fish that exceed the quota for the species are dumped at sea.

I have also received notice from Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill of the following matter:

The need for the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to implement recommendations No.6 and No.7 of the 2005 Indecon review of local government financing, which relate to water charges on non-principal private residences and general contribution to local authorities from non-principal private residences.

I regard the matters raised as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment. I have selected the matters raised by Senators Corrigan, Buttimer and Keaveney and they will be taken at the con[1446]clusion of business. Senator Ó Domhnaill may give notice on another day of the matter he wishes to raise.
