Ceisteanna — Questions. Oral Answers. - Drain of Emigration.

Personal Explanation by a Deputy.
That announcement is not open to discussion.
I regret that the Deputy was not.
That is so.
That is true.
No charge has been made against the Deputy.
It is left to the House to judge — that is all — if and when it comes before the Committee on Procedure and Privileges.
There is no suggestion whatever that the Deputy did not swear what he thought was correct.
I am afraid the matter is not open to discussion because it would raise what has been raised before the tribunal or the action of the tribunal itself. The Ceann Comhairle simply leaves it to the Comm...
A statement on what?
I do not see how it is possible to go into an explanation of what was said at the tribunal without discussing what was said.
It depends very much on the nature of the statement.
I will hear the Deputy, but if I think he is going too far I will have to take action.
The second point is what I want to have discussed by the Committee on Procedure and Privileges.
That is the only aspect that concerns the Chair.
That is arguing the matter that the Deputy says is to come before the Committee on Procedure and Privileges.
Order of Business.
That is the privilege of the Taoiseach.
The orderly fashion is that there is a Bill for introduction which has not been announced.

Rates on Agricultural Land (Relief) Bill, 1947—First Stage.
It is the annual Bill. Second Stage ordered to be taken on Wednesday, December 10th.
Committee on Finance. - Housing (Amendment) Bill, 1947—Committee.
I take it the Deputy is moving the amendment with the permission of Deputy Sheldon?
There is no use in going into the whole managerial system now.
Committee on Finance. - Housing (Amendment) Bill, 1947—Committee Stage (Resumed).
The acceptance of amendment No. 10 involves the deletion of Section 13. SECTION 14.
I have some doubts about this amendment as to whether the extension of this to the purchase of houses might not be too large an extension, but I am prepared to hear the Deputy.
If the Deputy would bear with me, I may say that I have not admitted the amendment. I am prepared to hear the mover and the Minister.
No, I have not.
That is sufficient. The amendment is out of order.
There are four related amendments — Nos. 13, 14, 21 and 24.
No. 21 is related.
Two Deputies have referred to the generosity of the Minister, anticipating that he would supply further moneys to meet this. If such were the case, the amendments would not be admissible, as involving...
The Chair did not suggest that at all.
