Dáil Eireann Debate
Leave given to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to extend the duration of certain provisions of the Industrial Grants Act, 1959, and to amend that Act and the Industrial Grants (Amendment) Act, 1961. — (Minister for Industry and Commerce).
Mr. Sweetman: In relation to all these Bills, I should like to say to the Taoiseach that, unless they are circulated well in advance, before 22nd January, we are going to get into a great mess like we did this year when we had to deal with legislation on top of financial business. Unless the back is broken of the legislation before the Book of Estimates comes out, we will never get clear.
The Taoiseach: Deputies are aware that normally a Bill is introduced only when a White Print has been approved by the Government. At the end of a Session, Bills are introduced which have not been fully drafted. It is intended in accordance with practice to have the Bill available before the Dáil resumes.
