Supplementary Estimates, 1980. - Vote 36: Fisheries (Resumed).

Yesterday the Chair informed Deputy Begley that to discuss a matter of this kind on this Supplementary Estimate is totally against the rules of the House but he continues to flaunt and to flout the ru...More Button

The Chair has informed the Deputy that the amount of money provided for BIM is for the purpose of meeting increases in salaries. In accordance with the rulings of this House down through the years, no...More Button

I have before me the rulings of all former occupants of the Chair in this regard. On numerous occasions the ruling has been that inclusion in Supplementary Estimates of a provision for salaries of ci...More Button

I would appeal to the Deputy to obey the Chair.More Button

The matter that the Deputy is attempting to raise is one for a general Estimate or for some other debate, but he may not raise it at this point.More Button

The subhead that the Deputy is dealing with is D.1. The original provision under this subhead was for £3,760,500. The additional amount required is to pay increases in salaries granted under the nat...More Button

The Chair is not prepared to argue further with the Deputy. If he persists in continuing in this way to flout the authority of the Chair, the Chair will not engage in further hassle with him. Since ...More Button

The Chair has told the Deputy that he is not entitled to deal with the question of the administration or of the policy of BIM so far as this Supplementary Estimate is concerned. Such matters would be ...More Button

The Chair is making one final appeal to the Deputy to leave this matter for the occasion of the general Estimate. The Deputy is only trying to force the Chair to send for the Ceann Comhairle, but I s...More Button

I shall not oblige the Deputy by sending for the Ceann Comhairle. I have explained that the question of the administration of BIM may be raised relevantly when the general Estimate is before the Hous...More Button

The Deputy is not entitled to debate the report here.More Button

I have appealed, I have begged and I do not want to send for the Ceann Comhairle at this stage. I once more appeal to the Deputy to get away from that matter and to obey the rulings of the Chair. At...More Button

That is a matter for the Deputy, not for the Chair.More Button

Every Deputy is entitled to put down a motion.More Button

I am only giving the Deputy the rulings of this House down through the years, but he is not prepared to accept them.More Button

The Chair will not allow the Deputy to flout the Chair's ruling in that respect.More Button

Deputy Begley, please.More Button

That is Deputy Begley's right, if he wants to do so.More Button

The Chair is saying that it will not allow the Deputy to break the long-established rules or make new rules of debate. I, as an individual in the Chair, have made none of those rules. They are there...More Button

That is not relevant to the debate on the Supplementary Estimate.More Button

The Deputy apparently, either does not understand, or does not wish to understand.More Button

We are discussing Supplementary Estimates, which do not allow the same scope or latitude as the general Estimate. The Deputy should accept that.More Button

There is no need to argue about this. We have had it before. Deputy, please.More Button

The Deputy should not make charges against the Chair. The rulings——More Button

The rulings of the Chair have been in existence down through the years. The Deputy might study them on the matter which he is now attempting to raise.More Button

The ruling on this is simple. The additional amount required is to meet the cost of pay increases, and the Deputy cannot discuss a policy on that item. That is the ruling of the Chair.More Button

Yes, that has always been the rule. It is not a precedent. This is only a Supplementary Estimate. The Deputy can only discuss the supplementary amounts in the Estimate, that is all. He can discuss ...More Button

I pointed out the whole thing to the Deputy many times. The additional amount is to meet the pay increase under the national understanding. Under the rules governing Supplementary Estimates, no deba...More Button

I have told the Deputy already, and he has agreed, that he is not entitled to debate those matters on this Supplementary Estimate.More Button

The Chair does not have to look at anything. The Chair has to give the rulings of the House down the years.More Button

Deputy Begley, please. The Chair does not want this sort of hassle on a Thursday afternoon.More Button

No, because the Deputy is wasting the time of the House.More Button

That is the first time that the Deputy has mentioned that. He is entitled to raise that point.More Button

He is entitled to raise that.More Button

The Chair has told the Deputy umpteen times that this matter cannot be raised on the Supplementary Estimate. He can raise it on the general Estimate.More Button

Deputy Begley, please, obey the Chair once in a while.More Button

The Deputy wants the Chair to do something that the Chair is not going to do. I have told the Deputy time and time again that he is not in order in raising the matters he has raised on BIM. He can d...More Button

Deputy, please, go on to some other matter.More Button

Where is that figure of £2,200?More Button

In General Administration, it is under Travelling and Incidental Expenses.More Button

There is.More Button

The advertisements the Deputy speaks of have nothing to do with Bord Iascaigh Mhara.More Button

The Chair knows it and I am sure the Minister knows it. Advertisements under Bord Iascaigh Mhara would come under their own subheadings.More Button

That is for the Department proper. It has nothing to do with Bord Iascaigh Mhara.More Button

I am not sensitive. I asked the Deputy not to pursue an issue which does not arise on a Supplementary Estimate.More Button

Do not be making charges against the Chair.More Button

The Deputy is again defying the Chair.More Button

The Deputy is deliberately defying the Chair.More Button

The Deputy is making charges against bodies which he is not entitled to make in the House. He will have to raise that on a different matter, not on a Supplementary Estimate.More Button

That is enough.More Button

We will not go into Bord Iascaigh Mhara any further.More Button

We cannot debate court cases.More Button

Supplementary Estimates, 1980. - Vóta 38: Roinn na Gaeltachta.

Ní ceart cur isteach ar an Aire.More Button

Adjournment Debate. - Political Asylum Application.

Deputy Keating has been given permission by the Ceann Comhairle to raise on the adjournment the question of the application for political asylum of a person.More Button

We cannot start all over again.More Button
