Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Tea Ration.
The Deputy is making a speech.
Order of Business.
The business proposed will include Fisheries (Supplementary).
Committee on Finance. - Vote 29—Agriculture (Resumed).
I notice that the Deputy referred to the Minister for Industry and Commerce in that connection.
The submission is correct, but whether the Minister for Agriculture is responsible for the price is another matter.
Is it in this Vote?
The Deputy said it was in this Vote. What item is it?
We are discussing the Estimate for Agriculture and that item is not in it. If there is no money for that item in the Estimate, well then it does not arise.
The Ceann Comhairle said that if there is no money in the Estimate for that item, it does not arise.
“He” being the Minister for Agriculture should be referred to as such.
According to the Standing Orders, Ministers are to be referred to as the Minister for so-and-so. I presume the Deputy is bound by these Standing Orders, the same as other Deputies.
Is that on this Vote?
The Deputy has gone back a long way.
There is no money here for greyhounds, and I doubt if they are an agricultural product.
Will the Deputy point out to the Chair on what item in this Vote there is money for greyhound racing?
There is no money for greyhounds in this Vote.
The Deputy should be allowed to make his speech.
