[2259]Mr. R. Burke: Information on Richard Burke  Zoom on Richard Burke  On the Fifth Stage, I just want to make it clear——

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Cormac Breslin  Zoom on Cormac Breslin  There can be no discussion. The motion this morning rules out any discussion on either Estimates or the Bill.

Mr. Clinton: Information on Mark A. Clinton  Zoom on Mark A. Clinton  It is a shocking disgrace on the Government that so many millions have to be passed without discussion.

Mr. Lemass: Information on Noel T. Lemass  Zoom on Noel T. Lemass  Read Standing Orders.

Mr. R. Burke: Information on Richard Burke  Zoom on Richard Burke  I want to explain.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Cormac Breslin  Zoom on Cormac Breslin  The Deputy would be out of order in doing so. The Deputy agreed to a motion this morning which finalises the debate.

Mr. R. Burke: Information on Richard Burke  Zoom on Richard Burke  We are accepting these seven Department Estimates subject to their being taken by way of £10 token Estimates after the Recess. That is all I want to say.

Mr. L'Estrange: Information on Gerald L'Estrange  Zoom on Gerald L'Estrange  That there will be a full discussion on them then.

Mr. R. Burke: Information on Richard Burke  Zoom on Richard Burke  Yes.

Mr. Andrews: Information on David Andrews  Zoom on David Andrews  On Deputy Clinton's point, six Deputies took 16½ hours to express their viewpoint on the Estimate for the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and Deputy Oliver Flanagan took over four hours. That is the reason. If they had kept the Whip's agreement and if there had been brief statements there would have been none of this sort of thing.

Mr. L'Estrange: Information on Gerald L'Estrange  Zoom on Gerald L'Estrange  Deputy Paddy Smith took seven hours at one time.

Mr. Andrews: Information on David Andrews  Zoom on David Andrews  We did a marvellous term's work.

Question put and agreed to.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Cormac Breslin  Zoom on Cormac Breslin  This Bill is certified to be a Money Bill for the purposes of Article 22 of the Constitution.
