Motions Nos. 29, 30, 31 and 32 not moved.

Mr. Dillon: Information on James Matthew Dillon  Zoom on James Matthew Dillon  For our guidance, could the Chair say what happens to a Bill and motions that are not moved ?

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Cormac Breslin  Zoom on Cormac Breslin  The motions go to the end of the page and the Bill retains its present position.

[187]Mr. Dillon: Information on James Matthew Dillon  Zoom on James Matthew Dillon  It simply appears on the paper again.

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Cormac Breslin  Zoom on Cormac Breslin  That is correct.

Mr. Russell: Information on George E. Russell  Zoom on George E. Russell  I have had some correspondence in regard to my motion with the Minister for Power and Transport and, by agreement, I am not moving it.

Parliamentary Secretary to the Taoiseach (Donnchadh Ó Briain): Information on Donnchadh Ó Briain  Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Briain  I should explain that Deputy Russell agreed not to move his motion at the request of the Minister for Transport and Power. As the Minister only recently took charge of the new Department, he asked Deputy Russell not to move the motion, and Deputy Russell kindly agreed, until a later time to be arranged to the mutual satisfaction of the Deputy and Minister.

General Mulcahy: Information on Richard James Mulcahy  Zoom on Richard James Mulcahy  Is it proposed then to give Government time to it when the Government is ready?

Donnchadh Ó Briain: Information on Donnchadh Ó Briain  Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Briain  That question has not been raised.

Mr. McQuillan: Information on John McQuillan  Zoom on John McQuillan  It is necessary that the consent of this House be given in a matter of this nature, when it is Private Members' time——

Donnchadh Ó Briain: Information on Donnchadh Ó Briain  Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Briain  As far as I can remember, it is quite a common thing for an arrangement like that to be made between the Deputy sponsoring the motion and the Minister in question.

Mr. McQuillan: Information on John McQuillan  Zoom on John McQuillan  I understood that a motion which is not moved goes to the bottom of the list, and that has been the practice in this House irrespective of any agreement between a Minister and a particular Deputy unless the consent of the rest of the House is given to that agreement.

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Cormac Breslin  Zoom on Cormac Breslin  The established rule is that when motions are not moved they go to the end of the list.
