Order of Business.

Is the Taoiseach aware through newspaper reports of a further leak from the appalling Sellafield nuclear plant and would he like to take the opportunity to reassure the nation that he has been notifie...More Button

I know, but I am just asking him to reassure the House. Perhaps the Minister for Energy would like to make a statement.More Button

There is a Bill immediately following this which could provide the facilities.More Button

It can be brought under the Bill. (Interruptions.)More Button

Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 1986: Second Stage.

Can we have the Minister's script?More Button

It would be a great help if we could have it.More Button

The Minister of State should not be impertinent. It is her first effort in here and a little bit of courtesy would help.More Button

It is a matter of regret that the Minister started on such an aggressive note on this issue which, as she said, is merely a technical Bill to put the machinery regarding the referendum in place. Ther...More Button

The Minister is a lady of so many talents. She has responsibility for the Office of Public Works.More Button

Now, now. A Cheann Comhairle, you ruled Deputy Leyden out of order. You should rule Deputy Carey out of order now.More Button

That proves that the system works.More Button

That proves that the system works and that only those who were eligible were given a postal vote.More Button

Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 1986: Committee and Final Stages.

I wish to register my disappointment with the Minister of State's attitude to postal voting. She said it would require legislation to implement postal voting. We already have a system of postal vot...More Button

Talk about pious platitudes. They announced last October that in defence of the hard pressed taxpayers there would be a system of sheriffs countrywide. Not one sheriff has been appointed.More Button

The Taoiseach's favourite word is “shortly”. It is now almost the end of May. This proposal was announced with a blare of trumpets. Question put and agreed to. Section 2 agreed to. SECTION 3. Questi...More Button

What voting hours will be used for this referendum?More Button

I would remind the Deputy that she is the Minister of State. Can she give any indication of the position.More Button

The maximum facility is 24. Will it be from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.?More Button

Will the Minister take the opportunity to give an indication to the House this morning?More Button

The maximum hours possible is 24.More Button
