Will Deputy Higgins allow Deputy Kelly to proceed without interruption, please.
Excuse me for one moment, Deputies Higgins and Mac Giolla, you are neither obliged nor expected to respond to the invitation put to you by Deputy Kelly——
You need not answer any questions put to you. Indeed he should not be directing them to you at all. He should direct all his comments to the Chair, when perhaps we could avoid the interruptions.
He is following the bad example that was set by yourself and Deputy Ó hUiginn. This is the problem we have.
Deputy Ó hUiginn and Deputy Mac Giolla both know that it is not in the interest of good debate to respond to provocative comment. (Interruptions.)
Is fearr Bodhaireacht Uí Laoire. Ná leig ort go gcloiseann tú é agus déanadh an Teachta Kelly an rud céanna maidir leis an Teachta Mac Giolla. An Teachta Mac Giolla without interruption.
Patience is always rewarded.
