Agreed?More Button

The practice has been when a Deputy puts down an amendment that the estimate and the amendment would be discussed together, and when the Minister or the Parliamentary Secretary responsible for it has ...More Button

I am afraid the Deputy is confusing the procedure on a motion as distinct from an amendment. That is the Deputy's trouble. I have stated the practice in the House has been that the Vote should be pu...More Button

Is the Deputy putting a point of order?More Button

Deputies who desired to speak on this matter got full scope and they took advantage of it. The Parliamentary Secretary was not called upon to reply to the debate until each Deputy who desired to spea...More Button

Certainly.More Button

It has been the practice here that when a member of the House is accused of anything, or when a statement is made concerning a member of the House and the person against whom that statement is made re...More Button

The Deputy ought not quibble in that way with the Chair. Deputy Flinn knows quite well what I mean. The President denied that the Deputy's statement was true and Deputy Flinn knows that.More Button

It would be better if the Deputy were allowed to make his speech and then the Minister could deal with various matters afterwards.More Button

What does the Deputy mean by “his own officials refusing information?” Will the Deputy explain what he means by that?More Button

The Deputy has been referring to the Minister's own court and to the Minister's own judges, and the Minister's own officials. Does not the Deputy know that is not a proper way in which to describe th...More Button

To whom is the Deputy referring?More Button
