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 ...More Button

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.More Button

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...More Button

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 ...More Button
