Restrictive Practices (Confirmation of Order) Bill, 1987: Committee Stage (Resumed).
Is the Deputy assuming that the replies will not be satisfactory?
Before this intervention I was going to say that since I arrived in the Chair, having listened carefully — and I have memories of when this Bill was previously before the House — I had decided we had ...
The Deputy will accept that I would do likewise in reverse situations.
We have to allow your constituency colleague to proceed without interruption.
This example of parochialism ill becomes the Members present. Could we proceed to deal with the matter?
Repetition is not allowed.
I accept the question put by the Deputy but I should like to remind him, and the House, that section 2 deals with the short title of the Bill. I will permit the Minister to make one short comment on ...
Copyright (Amendment) Bill, 1984: From the Seanad.
The Chair finds itself in slight difficulty because Deputy Keating is not here and he indicated earlier that he hoped to be back to discuss his amendment.
A comment maybe; accusation is too strong a word. We will proceed with the business as ordered. Is the amendment to the amendment in lieu of Seanad Amendment No. 1 agreed? Amendment put and declare...
Seanad Amendment No.3. Amendment No. 5 is cognate. Amendments Nos. 3 and 5 will be taken together by agreement.
Amendments Nos. 1, 2 and 3 to Seanad Amendment No. 4 to be taken together by agreement. Agreed. These amendments are in the name of Deputy Michael Keating. The Deputy is not here but we must proceed...
Seanad Amendment No. 6 and Amendment No. 1 to Seanad Amendment No. 6 to be taken together by agreement. Amendment No. 1 to Seanad Amendment No.6 not moved.
A message will be sent to the Seanad accordingly.

Amendments Nos. 1 to 4 can be taken together.
As amendments Nos. 5 and 6 are related they can be taken by agreement.

Jurisdiction of Courts and Enforcement of Judgements (European Communities) (No. 2) Bill, 1987 [Seanad]: Committee Stage (Resumed).
The Minister is nodding assent to that exhortation.
When is it proposed to take Report Stage? Now. Since there are no amendments on Report Stage we move to Fifth Stage. May I ask the Minister to move: “That the Bill do now pass”.
Could we have agreement, albeit temporarily, to a possible date?
Abattoirs Bill, 1987 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed).
I am calling Deputy Leonard. I think I can anticipate what Deputy Sherlock is going to say — that ordinarily, had the debate followed the normal Second Stage sequence, Deputy Sherlock might have been...
As I indicated to the Deputy already, ordinarily that would happen. It was because of that I anticipated, when Deputy Sherlock rose, that he was going to make the point he did. In the circumstances ...
I think the Deputy may take it that the respective Whips know him so well not to venture to indulge in any arrangement that would exclude him.
I do not know how lengthy a contribution Deputy Leonard may make.
Deputy Leonard assures the House that his contribution will be very short after which I will be happy to call Deputy Sherlock.
The Chair thanks Deputy Leonard for his co-operation and now rewards Deputy Sherlock for his patience.
Private Members' Business. - National Social Service Board: Motion.
The Minister, please, without interruption.
We all have our own idea about importance but normally we do not interrupt.
You cannot formally propose the amendment until the Minister's amendment has been dealt with but you can speak about it.
Party arrangements such as this have to meet with the approval of the House. If the House agrees to the request I will be happy to agree.
Deputy Allen should address the Chair and it might not encourage the Minister to reply.

With the agreement of the House, it is the intention to use the balance of Deputy Cosgrave's time.
The Minister of State has indicated the position.
The House will appreciate that the Chair is allowing this question and is asking that we do not develop it at greater length.

I would not like to let today's deliberations conclude without acknowledging the sad fact that Ned Murphy, the longest serving member of the Press Gallery, is with us no longer, and expressing sympat...
