I completely ignore it when the Chair lets one question go on for a longer period than another and does not permit me to ask a second supplementary.More Button

I resent the Chair using language like that towards me. I am no worse than Deputies on either side of the House and I feel than when the Chair allows one question to go on for ten minutes and another...More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Conference on the Law of the Sea.

asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs if he will make, either by way of reply to this question or in some form that he may find more convenient, a full statement on the progress to date of the Confer...More Button
