Motion for Late Sitting.
That is not a point of order.
I am accepting that motion.
I have accepted the motion and there can be no further discussion. Question put. The Dáil divided: Tá, 55; Níl, 24. Tá
Conditions of Employment Bill, 1935—Committee (Resumed).
It is out of order.
Amendments Nos. 128 and 129 are interdependent.
Is the amendment withdrawn?
Has not that matter been disposed of?
Finance Bill, 1935—Committee Stage (Resumed).
We are concerned with slates here.
That is a matter for the Minister for Industry and Commerce.
That is not a point of order.
The Deputy is correct in saying that there is only one item before the Committee.
That has no relation to a tax on paper.
Neither political attacks on, nor the Government attitude towards newspapers, arise on this amendment.
If the Minister rises to a point of order, the Chair must hear it.
The Minister quite properly directed the Chair as to the significance of this duty or tax, and to the fact that no licences are involved. The Chair has to be guided by the Minister in such matters.
The Chair simply accepted the Minister's statement that there is no licensing power.
That disorderly remark should not have been repeated.
There is another amendment to the schedule.
That tax has been passed.
An interruption by Deputy Donnelly does not put a thing in order.
I do not think the Deputy was here when I said that a remark or interjection by Deputy Donnelly, who has not interfered otherwise in this debate, on one specific tax, does not put a debate on the taxa...
The Chair was waiting for the Deputy to come to the matter under discussion.
I want to hear what the Deputy has to say.
I desire to elucidate the position relative to this schedule. If Deputies look at page 1 of the Bill, they will observe that Sections 10 and 11 refer to the imposition of duties in the First Schedule...
Discussion on the principle would arise by way of amendment. The House decided that Section 12 and the schedule mentioned should stand, unless Deputies tabled amendments. Explanation of items may, o...
Deputies are not precluded from demanding any explanation or elucidation of that character, but, the principle agreed should not be re-discussed.
It seems to the Chair that much of the matter referred to would come within the province of the Minister for Industry and Commerce.
The Deputy's query is in order.
That may be so, but the Deputy must take this particular item by itself. It is simply an increase of duty on certain specific articles, and those alone may be dealt with.
The Deputy will see that that would apply to every tax in this Budget and that it might be said about every one of them.
It might be true but not relevant.
What about putty?
To report progress.
The Chair has also received another motion: That the Dáil do now adjourn until 10.30 a.m. on Saturday, July 6th, 1935, and that the Order for the adjournment on that date be taken not later than 12 o'...
The order on the adjournment is made before the adjournment. A statement was, as usual, made in the morning but no order. That is the position. The statement was that the motion for the adjournment...
I have accepted the Motion. If it is challenged, it can be put to a division.
The Chair has accepted the motion.
That progress be reported.
I am putting the question that progress be now reported.
I accept that motion.
There can be no discussion on the motion.
There can be no discussion.
Discussion ends once that motion has been accepted.
The question is that, on the motion to report progress, the question be now put. Question put. The Dáil divided: Tá, 39; Níl, 20. Tá
As regards the motion that the Dáil do now adjourn till 10.30 a.m. to-morrow, July 6th, that motion was handed to the Chair as a matter of urgency, as certain Bills have to get through this House with...
Comments on the Chair may be made by one method, by express resolution.
I am accepting the motion that the question be now put.
I have accepted the motion that the question be now put. The Deputy understands this matter must be decided before 12 o'clock.
Not under Standing Orders.
