Dáil Eireann Debate
The Taoiseach: It is proposed to take business as on the Order Paper Nos. 2, 4, 9 and 1. If not already reached it is proposed to interrupt business at 6 p.m. to take No. 1. It is proposed to take Private Members' Business at 9 o'clock.
Mr. Wycherley: I have a motion on the Order Paper of very grave importance and I would ask that the Government should give time to have it considered before the West Cork Railways close down. Córas Iompair Éireann have refused to receive a deputation and I am very concerned about the matter. Will the Taoiseach allow special time so that the motion may be moved?
Mr. Dillon: I would put it to the Taoiseach that Deputy Wycherley is entitled to sympathetic consideration in this matter. It relates to the closing down of a railway and C.I.E. might conceivably have lifted the rails before this matter would be considered by the House which would, to say the least of it, give the whole matter an aura of irrevocability. Deputy Wycherley's motion is a matter of the gravest importance and I can quite understand his concern about it.
Mr. Dillon: Will the Taoiseach consider Deputy Wycherley's difficulty? If the rails are lifted it will militate against Deputy Wycherley's struggle here. I would invite the Taoiseach to give grave consideration to the motion.
