NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL, 1923. - DÁIL IN COMMITTEE.
To Section 19 there were amendments on the Paper, and at 12.45 to-day further amendments were received.
That is, paragraph (e) of Sub-section 2, as it stands in the Bill, is a repetition of Amendment 6, as now accepted?
This amendment by Deputy Johnson will be withdrawn, and the President can move his amendment on the Report Stage.
NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL, 1923. - THE DAIL RESUMES.
The Bill as amended is reported. When will the Report Stage be taken?
NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL, 1923. - NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL, 1923.—FIFTH STAGE.
We will take it that the question of the Acquisition of Premises Bill on Wednesday, discharges the other Order, and we will take it on Friday of this week. Agreed.
NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL, 1923. - LAND BILL, 1923.—SECOND STAGE—ADJOURNED DEBATE RESUMED.
The Deputy must not say that someone was uttering a deliberate falsehood. The Deputy will withdraw that statement.
The Minister for Agriculture says that charges were made against him, but there are so many that I suppose he does not want to refute them all.
Order, order. Deputy Gorey must not interrupt in this way. If Deputy Gorey wishes to tell somebody that he is ignorant on the matter that is not a point of order.
Before the Minister continues, may I say that I wonder do Deputies realise that this is a Bill containing sixty sections and two schedules, that it will have a Committee Stage, and that in the Committ...
And all these points can be raised at that particular time without taking them now.
Now, Deputy Gorey must sit down. I intend to allow no more points to be raised on this Bill until we go into Committee on its 60 Sections. Question put: “That the Bill be read a Second Time.” Agreed....
There is no doubt about Deputies being in possession of to-day's debates before next Tuesday. I think we will have them on next Thursday evening.
THE DAIL IN COMMITTEE. - INCREASE OF RENT AND MORTGAGE INTEREST (RESTRICTIONS) BILL, 1923.—REPORT.
The amendment was not moved on the Committee Stage. It was ruled out of order on the Minister's representation that it was part of a Section already passed. It was said it might come in under Section...
The next amendment was received late and sent to the printers in the form it was received. I have suggested as an alternation the following: “Provided that, in the case of a tenant whose income does n...
Was there an amendment to this effect in Committee?
There is a Standing Order on the matter which says:—“In the case of Bills returned from Dáil Eireann sitting in Committee no amendments, previously rejected shall be in order.”
The Standing Order specifically does not mention Special Committees, and therefore, I presume, the intention of the Committee on Procedure was to exclude amendments of this character.
The Minister is in order in making a point of order to the effect that the amendment cannot be moved.
Then the Deputy's amendment is out of order and cannot be moved.
The Deputy will have to be reminded that the Judge will never know what he has in his mind.
THE DAIL IN COMMITTEE. - FIFTH STAGE.
Is the Deputy speaking to the motion:: “That the Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest Bill do now pass”?
But that is not relevant to the motion that this particular Bill do now pass. This is not a Town Tenants Bill, as has been so frequently pointed out.
This is a Bill to interfere with the rights of landlords.
It is a Bill to interfere with the rights of landlords. Its purpose is to restrict the increase of rent and mortgage interest. That is the precise definition of the Bill. I assure the Deputy that he i...
