Question on Adjournment.

The subject matter of Question 11 will be raised on the Adjournment.More Button

Bills from Seanad—Question of Procedure.

The Deputy did not give me any notice of this.More Button

The Deputy wishes to know what is the position of Bills initiated in and passed by the Seanad and sent to Dáil Eireann for consideration. They remain on the Order Paper until a motion is made for Sec...More Button

Of course, if the Deputy and the Minister do not agree as to what it was, it is not for the Ceann Comhairle to say what it was. If the Minister chose to move the Second Reading in Government time, he...More Button

Will the Deputy explain what the difficulty is?More Button

The position is that the President could, if he so wished, allow Deputy Little to move a Bill in Government time without the Bill becoming a Government measure.More Button

The circumstance that no member of the Executive Council was present on the front bench, might, conceivably, be deemed by the Chair a sufficient reason for acceding to a claim to move to report progr...More Button

I have no function to say whether Ministers will or will not take a particular line of action. From the point of view of the Chair, what would appear to be necessary is the presence of a Minister on ...More Button

I am not accepting the motion to report progress. There is a convention that a Minister concludes a motion he has moved, even in Committee. That has been mentioned over and over again. It seems to b...More Button

In Committee on Finance. - Vote No. 14—Property Losses Compensation.

Yes. The Minister for Finance is now present, but Deputies will have to realise that Ministers are interchangeable units. The fact that they have collective responsibility means that one Minister may...More Button

In Committee on Finance. - Vote 48—Technical Instruction.

It is a little advanced from the Estimate.More Button

In Committee on Finance. - Vote No. 52—Agriculture.

It will be on the main Estimate?More Button

There will be a sub-head on the Vote.More Button
