It is now considered an offence to be a member of a committee.More Button

Can the Parliamentary Secretary say whether it was considered that this man was in insurable employment with CIE?More Button

Was it decided by the Department that this man was in insurable employment? It must have been, because he had stamped an insurance card. When he became unemployed he was not an insured worker accord...More Button

Can the Parliamentary Secretary say on what grounds his appeal was turned down? Surely the deciding officer was carrying out the instructions of the Department. On what grounds was this man's claim ...More Button

When he was employed by CIE and stamping a card what was he?More Button

And, therefore, paying for benefits which, when he was unemployed, the Department refused to give him.More Button

Committee on Finance. - Finance Bill, 1972: Committee Stage.

Is there any particular reason why the amendment cannot be accepted or why the Minister cannot undertake to introduce an amendment which would achieve the same results? What Deputy FitzGerald says see...More Button

It depends on whether you are an optimist or a pessimist.More Button

Why should she be at a disadvantage in any case?More Button

Accident or no accident.More Button

It does appear that the issue is not a matter of principle but simply whether or not the words mean what the Minister claims they mean and what Deputy FitzGerald claims they do not mean. It is a ques...More Button

If the Minister wants to achieve something, it is the Minister's job to ensure that it is achieved. Deputy FitzGerald pointed out, and rightly so, that he thought this was wrong and should be correcte...More Button

I do not agree with Deputy J. Lenehan on a number of things but he did refer to the fact that one has heard again and again and again the same point raised by the one Deputy and it does sound a little...More Button
