Order of Business.
Does the House agree to the discharge of the two Orders referred to? Agreed.
Business of Dáil.
The Chair will communicate with Deputy Molloy on the matter.
Agriculture (Amendment) Bill, 1974: First Stage.
When is it proposed to take the Second Stage?
Anti-Discrimination (Pay) Bill, 1974: From the Seanad.
This Bill was passed by the Dáil but amended by the Seanad. There are five Seanad amendments.
I hesitate to interrupt the Deputy but he is clearly straying far from the Seanad amendment under discussion. Remarks must be confined to the amendment under discussion which is to add words to secti...
We are not debating the Bill. The Bill has already been passed by this House. We are debating the Seanad amendment.
The section is not under debate.
We should not anticipate the introduction of legislation.
Not at this stage. We are now dealing with the Seanad amendments only.
The Deputy is straying into general comment on the Bill. That is not in order.
I cannot allow further discussion. I thought the Deputy wanted to ask some questions and I was about to facilitate him.
That is not a question.
The Deputy is straying into a new area.
Maintenance Orders Bill, 1974: Report and Final Stages.
Is the amendment withdrawn?
I shall put the question. Question—“That the words proposed to be deleted stand part of the Bill”—put. The Dáil divided : Tá, 52; Níl, 36. Tá
Recommital is necessary in respect of amendment Nos. 2 and 3 since they involve proposals of substance which do not effectively arise from Committee proceedings. I would like agreement, therefore, fo...
No, the amendments only. Would the Minister please move accordingly that amendments Nos. 2 and 3 be recommitted?
They will be debated together but voted upon separately if necessary.
Committee on Finance. - Vote 48: Social Welfare (Resumed).
The Chair would prefer if the Deputy would address his remarks to the Chair rather than directly across the floor to the Parliamentary Secretary.
Adjournment Debate. - Galway Glass Factory.
Deputy Molloy gave notice this afternoon of his intention to raise a matter on the adjournment and I granted approval. When the Minister is present we will proceed.
We have had a most orderly Assembly up to now and let us not mar it.
I hesitate to interrupt the Deputy but I would point out that it is the convention of the House that if at all avoidable we do not refer by name to firms. I appreciate the point the Deputy is making.
The Minister, to reply.
We must have an orderly discussion.
The Deputy got 20 minutes to make his case. Will he now permit the Minister to reply in the ten minutes he has been given?
