The PRESIDENT: Information on William T. Cosgrave  Zoom on William T. Cosgrave  I will have to move to take the time of the Dáil beyond two o'clock with regard to Government [1938] business. Before 2 o'clock I intend to move that we should sit late this evening in order to finish any business there is on the Order Paper. The first motion deals with Government business, and I would be anxious to deal with that before we take up other business. I am not, by reason of the first motion, going to shut out any business put down by private members. I therefore move, under Standing Order No. 74:—

“That the proceedings on the Public Safety (Powers of Arrest and Detention) Temporary Bill be not interrupted to-day at 2 p.m. if the Bill be under consideration at that hour.”

Mr. JOHNSON: Information on Thomas Johnson  Zoom on Thomas Johnson  I wonder would the President take into account the desirability of having an adjournment for a convenient time—say three-quarters of an hour?

The PRESIDENT: Information on William T. Cosgrave  Zoom on William T. Cosgrave  I am quite willing to do that.

Question put and agreed to.

Mr. DARRELL FIGGIS: Information on Darrell Figgis  Zoom on Darrell Figgis  In regard to the Orders of the Day, may I ask if item No. 2—Ministers and Secretaries Bill—will be taken to-day.

AN CEANN COMHAIRLE: Information on Michael Hayes  Zoom on Michael Hayes  No. And, in connection with the Private Business on the Order Paper, I consulted the Committee of Procedure and Privileges, and it was their view, and it is my own, that item No. 4 on the Order Paper, which is a vote of censure on the Government, should take precedence of item No. 3, if item No. 3 proves to be an opposed motion.
