Prohibition of Forcible Entry and Occupation Bill, 1970: Report Stage (Resumed).
The Deputy has only to look into his own heart.
Up to the time this Bill is passed.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Membership of EEC.
asked the Taoiseach when the Government expect to publish a White Paper setting out the terms of Ireland's entry into the EEC; whether Dáil Éireann will be given the opportunity of debating and voting...
It is reasonable, therefore, to assume that the White Paper will be debated some time, say, in January, February or March?
In view of the positive statements by the Taoiseach and some of his colleagues that we would be in Europe by the 1st January, 1973, does he not think that he leaves himself a short time in order to in...
I can assure the Taoiseach that it will.
Why not have an election?
asked the Taoiseach if the Government have decided as to how and when changes required in domestic legislation, consequent on the entry of Ireland into the EEC, will be proposed to Dáil Éireann.
The Taoiseach informed the House some time ago that there was a committee, chaired by the Attorney General, which was considering the changes necessary in our legislation. I presume this is the exami...
There will be two types of legislation—changes in domestic legislation and then the introduction of legislation to provide for a referendum for constitutional changes?
And we still have the assurance of the Taoiseach that in the referendum the change in the Constitution will be put separately to the people? It will not be a global presentation?
Is it the position, therefore, that this Government publicly states that they are prepared to go into Europe without knowing themselves what the actual constitutional changes necessary are?
Surely these constituional changes must be related to the Treaty of Rome? The Taoiseach says our application has been in for the past ten years. The Treaty of Rome has been published for the past 12...
“A good idea” is pretty vague.
Does the Taoiseach mean it is not quite certain that we will come to an agreement as yet even?
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Alleged Tax Evasion.
Is it only when a person is refused unemployment assistance or a medical card that his or her financial means are disclosed in this House?
I am telling the Minister that there is a contradiction in what he said.
If it is a poor person with £7 or £8 a week the Dáil and the country are told about it.
If there is evasion of income tax it is the Minister's job to investigate it, the same as he investigates applications for medical cards or unemployment assistance.
Health Services (Limited Eligibility) Regulations, 1971: Motion.
Especially in the remote parts of the country.
The Deputy has not got a few, has he?
The Parliamentary Secretary can make a speech on this as well.
The Parliamentary Secretary will be. The Ceann Comhairle will let him talk about medical cards.
They are dragging them back by the score.
