Order of Business.

Is the proposal for dealing with No. 11 satisfactory? Agreed.More Button

Is legislation promised in this area?More Button

The Chair is not in a position, and never was, to compel any Member to speak if he or she does not wish to do so.More Button

Deputy Bruton has been allowed to put his question and the Chair did not hinder him in the matter.More Button

It is a matter which ought not to arise on the Order of Business. There are doubtless other ways and means of adverting to the matter.More Button

My office will be glad to assist you in the matter.More Button

The question has been asked and replied to. It may not be debated.More Button

The Deputy must pursue that in the normal way.More Button

That matter could be raised in the normal way.More Button

I feel certain the Deputy will find a suitable way of raising that matter.More Button

We must not generalise now, Deputy.More Button

The Deputy might communicate with my office on the matter.More Button

I now call on the Minister for Finance to move item No. 11, Presidential Establishment (Amendment) Bill, 1990.More Button

Presidential Establishment (Amendment) Bill, 1990: Second Stage.

I have to say that the matter before us this morning refers to the Presidential Establishment only.More Button

I hesitate to interrupt the Deputy but it is clear to me that he is straying considerably from the Bill before us which has to do with the Presidential Establishment and emoluments thereof. At this s...More Button

I feel sure the Deputy will have regard to the sentiments I have expressed, which are those of all of my predecessors in respect of such matters.More Button

The Deputy is straying considerably from the rather limited Bill before us. I would ask him to please have due regard for the admonitions I have already conveyed to him and to the House generally. T...More Button

I am grateful to the Deputy for that consideration because in the opinion of the Chair he has strayed quite considerably from the rather limited Bill before us this morning. I would hope that is suffi...More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Interest Rates.

I rather expected brevity, Deputy.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Customs Clearance.

Let us have regard to the time factor also.More Button

I have to say now that the time available to us for priority questions is well-nigh exhausted. I will call Deputy Noonan whose Question No. 3 refers.More Button

That is fine, I will do the best I can. It is nearly on time. Let us have a reply to Question No. 4 in the name of Deputy Noonan, Limerick East.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Interest Rates.

A final and brief supplementary question from Deputy Noonan.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - EC Structural Finance.

Deputy Ruairí Quinn.More Button

Sorry, I have called Deputy Quinn.More Button

Perhaps if the Deputy is patient I will call him again.More Button

This should not lead to argument. I am going on to another question now.More Button

Question No. 6, please.More Button

Sorry, Question No. 6. The Deputy's own question will be responded to now.More Button

Please, Deputy Noonan.More Button

I have called the next question.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - State Boards.

This is an extension of the scope of the question.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Proposed European Central Bank.

I am moving to Question No. 8.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Access to Government Buildings.

I would be grateful if the questions were specific and brief.More Button

The Deputy has repeatedly put the question and that should be adequate.More Button

The Deputy has adequately made his point.More Button

Deputy Gregory has received quite some latitude from the Chair. He should appreciate that and come to finality in respect of this question.More Button

The Deputy asked that question on a number of occasions.More Button

The Deputy is bringing in quite a lot of extraneous matter.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - National Lottery.

I am concerned about the lack of worthwhile progress at questions today. We have only been able to dispose of some nine questions over 45 minutes. That is not satisfactory from any standpoint.More Button

The subject matter of that question is one for another Minister.More Button

Let us have a pertinent question.More Button

The Deputy has embarked on a statement and this is not good enough at Question Time.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Capital Projects.

The Deputy is raising a very special matter worthy of a separate question.More Button

The question is whether it is in order now.More Button

I call Deputy Michael Noonan, (Limerick East).More Button

It is certainly relevant if one differentiates between the general and the particular, but, as I said earlier, if the Deputy wanted information concerning that matter it deserved a special question.More Button

It is a matter for the Minister of State now.More Button

I call Deputy Michael Noonan Limerick East.More Button

There is no need to engender heat into the subject.More Button

That is another separate matter.More Button

I am calling Question No. 11.More Button
