Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Noonan: (Limerick West): Is the Taoiseach prepared to make Government time available for discussion of item  No. 42 on the Order Paper? This item concerns the implications for Irish agriculture of the proposed EEC milk super-levy.
Mr. De Rossa: The Minister for the Environment indicated on 19 October that he would be introducing an amendment to the Housing Act to enable local authorities to give houses to people outside their area. He indicated that the legislation would be introduced within a matter of weeks. Can he say now when that legislation will be brought in?
Mr. G. Brady: My question related to the siting of Cruise missiles in the North of Ireland but I was informed by your office that the matter could not be discussed other than by way of substantive motion. Today I see the question on the Order Paper as Question No. 1 to the Taoiseach. I thought it would be of help to the Taoiseach before going to see the British Prime Minister to have had the matter discussed. Last week you allowed a motion on the culling of seals. One might ask which is the more important: the culling of seals or the culling of people?
Mr. S. Byrne: I find it difficult to do so because of my concern for the livelihoods of the many people involved in so far as this issue is concerned. I am fighting on behalf of the farmers and the workers.
