Order of Business.
Obviously, the Deputy cannot discuss that beyond asking for time.
Obviously, this is not in order now. That will arise at a later stage on Deputy Dillon's motion and can be discussed in full. It does not come up now for discussion. What comes up now is whether th...
I have asked the Deputy to desist from discussing that. The merits of that may not be discussed on this occasion. The Deputy can discuss that at a later stage on the motion to which he referred, but...
The Deputy cannot anticipate the subject matter of a motion that is before the House.
It is not relevant. I have told Deputy Dillon that it is not relevant. The question to be discussed now is whether we should adjourn or not, nothing more.
The matter before the House is whether the House adjourns.
What the Deputy proposes to raise is a matter of privilege. This is not the way to raise that.
The Deputy is endeavouring to discuss the motion.
The Deputy will confine himself to reasons why this House should not adjourn, and nothing more. He will not proceed to discuss the motion on the Order Paper, or anything that may be considered releva...
The Deputy is saying all over again what I warned him he could not say. I warned him on that.
The Chair is the judge of whether it is relevant or not, Deputy Dillon. I warn the Deputy he cannot pursue that line.
The arguments that are made must be relevant to the issue before the House.
I hope the Deputy will confine himself to that.
The Deputy will confine himself to the motion for the Adjournment.
The Parliamentary Secretary should not interrupt Deputy Dillon. He will have an opportunity of making any statements he wishes.
Deputy McGrath should allow Deputy Dillon to proceed, as far as he is relevant.
I did not mean that. As far as the Deputy is relevant, I intend to allow him to proceed.
The Deputy is surely travelling far beyond the reason why the House should or should not adjourn at 5 o'clock this evening until next Tuesday. There is a limit to the patience of the Chair in respect...
Whatever way the Deputy proposes to describe the members of the Government Party is a matter of concern for himself, but he has not advanced any sufficient reason as to why the House should or should ...
That does not arise at all. An Order was made by the House on the recommendation of the Committee on Procedure and Privileges.
What happened between the Whips with respect to any particular motion is surely not relevant.
There is no need to make that case.
This seems to be far removed from the reason as to why the House should or should not adjourn.
The Deputy is now trying to discuss a motion that is on the Paper. He may not do that. The only matter he can discuss is whether or not this House, on its rising to-day, should adjourn until 3 o'cloc...
The Deputy is going back to a discussion on that motion, which is entirely irrelevant on this occasion.
That does not arise on this motion. There is only one thing relevant—whether the House, on its rising this evening, should adjourn until next Tuesday or not.
Deputy Dillon has had his innings and he ought to allow others to speak.
The Deputy should not travel beyond the motion.
Is the Tánaiste proposing to conclude?
No other Deputy offered to speak.
On the motion.
The motion for the Adjournment.
I called on the Tánaiste.
Deputy Cafferky will not anticipate a decision of this House in respect of a motion before it.
The Deputy will resume his seat.
Deputy Cafferky said that I did not call on the Tánaiste to conclude, as I was supposed to have done on the previous day. That was clearly giving an indication that the House had decided in a certain...
That was an order of the Dáil. We cannot reopen it, surely.
The Deputy is entering into the realms of discussion on the motion now. What we are discussing is whether the Dáil should adjourn or not.
The Tánaiste to conclude.
The motion is:— That the Dáil on rising this evening do adjourn until Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Motion put and declared carried.
Committee on Finance. - Freshwater Fisheries (Prohibition of Netting) Bill, 1951—Committee and Final Stages.
The amendment is on the Order Paper.
Committee on Finance. - Vote 29—Office of the Minister for Justice (Resumed).
That would require legislation.
I shall allow the Deputy to proceed on this line within a certain limit.
The Minister for Posts and Telegraphs is Minister for Posts and Telegraphs.
Is the book in the control of the Minister?
The Chair is at a loss. The Chair does not know anything about the book.
The Deputy understands this is a very serious charge.
Perhaps the Deputy would allow me. The Deputy realises this is a very serious charge. A man is a member of this House who is not entitled to be a member of this House and not entitled to be a member ...
I am not denying the Deputy his rights. This is a serious charge and should be raised in another fashion.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Coal Supplies.
Question No. 7.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Use of Coal at Portarlington.
I have called No. 8.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Rural Electrification.
That has nothing whatever to do with question No. 9.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Damage to Post Office Property.
I did not hear any statement of the kind. So many statements were made that I could not relate them to any particular Deputy. I call on Question 20 now.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Milk Prices—Cost of Production.
The Deputy is giving information. He is not asking a question.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - County Waterford Schools—Sanitation.
This has reference only to Waterford.
Question on Adjournment.
A decision will be conveyed to the Deputy on the matter.
Notice was also given by the Deputy. The decision will be conveyed to the Deputies concerned.
Committee on Finance. - Adjournment Debate—Brosna Drainage Workers.
The Deputy might confine himself to the question.
There is nothing here about what rates should be given. The question reads:— “When the rates... will be paid.” There is no indication that the amount granted is inadequate.
There is nothing here about whether it is adequate or inadequate.
The question deals with when the increase will be paid and the cause of the delay. Nothing more is to be discussed.
