Nomination of Member of the Government: Motion.

I am sorry to interrupt the Deputy but I am sure he will agree that social and economic policy was discussed here recently and it would not be in order to reopen such a debate.More Button

I am afraid Standing Orders would preclude us from repetition in respect of some recent debates we have had.More Button

In respect of widening the debate to the area of social and economic policy.More Button

I am ruling out repetition of recent debates and I am sure the Deputy will appreciate the need for that.More Button

I have given the Deputy a good deal of latitude but I am bound to say again that in my opinion this motion does not encompass a discussion on Government policy and that in any case we had a debate on ...More Button

I am motivated by the Standing Orders of the House.More Button

I have given the Deputy a good deal of latitude but the motion before us today deals with whether a certain Member should be appointed to the Government.More Button

It may well be that the Taoiseach on that occasion referred to the circumstances surrounding the termination of the appointments of certain Members of the Government and so widened the scope of the de...More Button

The Chair will afford the Deputy every latitude but wants to dissuade the House as a whole from debating on this occasion the Government social and economic policy.More Button

I am sorry to interrupt the Deputy but he will appreciate that it would not be in order to go into detail in respect of matters appertaining to the Department of Defence on this motion. I have allow...More Button

The Chair will decide these matters.More Button

The Minister.More Button

The Deputy is going into the kind of detail in respect of defence matters which would be more appropriate to the Estimate.More Button

The Deputy is getting very far away from the matter before the House.More Button

Order. Deputy Dowling.More Button

The Deputy knows full well that it is wrong and disorderly to ascribe to a Member of this House that he deliberately misled the House.More Button

I have already ruled on that, Deputy. The Deputy may not say that. It is not in order to say that any Member deliberately misled this House.More Button

I do not know what the implication of that remark is.More Button

Deputies should not indulge in repetition.More Button

Order. If the Deputy is going to make serious allegations of the kind he has outlined, he must quote the exact words from the tribunal. He ought not to add or subtract from it or make deductions.More Button

Question No. 3.More Button

Question, please.More Button

I will communicate with the Deputy.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Telephone Service.

This is leading to argument. I am calling Question No. 16.More Button

We have dwelt on this question for a considerable time now.More Button

A question, Deputy, please.More Button

We have been on this question for the last quarter of an hour. I am calling question No. 18.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - County Longford School.

The remaining question will appear on tomorrow's Order Paper.More Button

The Chair merely interprets Standing Orders.More Button

Order.More Button

Vote 43: Transport and Power (Resumed).

Will members who do not seem to be interested in the proceedings of the House please leave as quietly as possible?More Button

I am anxious that the Deputy relate his remarks to the Supplementary Estimate for Transport and Power. I am also anxious to dissuade him from straying into an area which is the responsibility of anot...More Button

We are discussing the Department of Transport and Power in this Supplementary Estimate.More Button

I am anxious that the Deputy would confine his remarks to the Supplementary Estimate, which is very limited. I am concerned that he is going into detail which should properly be reserved for the main...More Button

It is hardly relevant now, Deputy, on this Supplementary Estimate.More Button

The Minister in possession is not responsible for that. It would not be in order.More Button
