Business of the Dáil.

Is it customary for the Chair to act in regard to the appearance of a Bill on the Order Paper, as it has done in this particular case?More Button

Is it then your ruling or explanation as to why this Bill does not appear on the Order Paper that the Government did not introduce that Money Resolution? If not, what is the explanation?More Button

Did I understand you to say that this is the first case in which a Bill has got a Second Reading and the Money Resolution was refused, and if so by whom was it refused?More Button

The Minister for Justice, who is in charge of something like 6,000 Guards, has picked out for commendation to this House as a good public officer a man who has assaulted an ordinary civilian and who h...More Button

Something funny has happened. I do not know what it is. There has been an eruption.More Button

Yes, since I have been asked about it, on that occasion a solid national block of 110 faced 15 who were hostile to the national principles involved in that vote. And that same fifteen alone, and ever...More Button

What are you going to say? Is the Minister for Finance as privatively ignorant of what is being done with the money he supplies to Deputy Hogan as Deputy Desmond Fitzgerald is of the Department of De...More Button

Right. We will come to the Shannon scheme. Let us start with sugar beet. What does this House think of the business ability of anyone who was connected with the finances of the sugar beet scheme? I...More Button

Yes and I can tell the Deputy the name of Queen Anne's grandmother.More Button

I would be very glad some day to get a legal opinion, a really high-class legal opinion, on the annuities question from the Lord Chancellor.More Button

Certainly not. That is the proposition. Yet the Carlow sugar beet scheme cannot complete in the city of Cork with sugar which has that handicap. They have not been selling any sugar in Cork. What ...More Button

Good old fifteen!More Button
