Dáil Eireann Debate
The Taoiseach: It is proposed to take business in the following order: Nos. 4 (resumed), 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 1 and 2. Business will be interrupted at 3.30 p.m. to take No. 1, followed by No. 2, and the Order will not be resumed thereafter. By agreement the Dáil will sit later than 5.30 p.m. today and not later than 12 midnight to enable the Financial Resolutions, with the exception of the general Financial Resolution, to be concluded and allow item No. 2 to be disposed of. It is proposed that following the Budget Statement of the Minister for Finance and the statements of the spokesmen of the parties in Opposition the sitting will be suspended for 30 minutes.
Mr. P. Barry: When will I get a copy of the amendments proposed to the existing legislation? I presume the Government do not want to renew the temporary provisions and want to get through a substantive Bill.
Dr. FitzGerald: Thanks for the acknowledgement. I should like to inform the House that a copy of the signed and witnessed agreement between the Taoiseach and Deputy Gregory has been lodged in the Library and is available to Deputies.
The Taoiseach: I would make a slight correction to that in the interests of accuracy in the records. The agreement arrived at between Deputy Gregory and  myself was between Deputy Haughey and Deputy Gregory.
