Request to Move Adjournment of Dáil Under Standing Order 30.

Before coming to the Order of Business proper I have a number of motions under Standing Order 30 to deal with. I propose to deal with these motions — under Standing Order 30 — which I have received f...More Button

I now call on Deputy Jim Higgins.More Button

Deputy, this is not the question you conveyed to my office. I must ask you to put the question you submitted to my office.More Button

Having considered the matters fully I do not consider them to be contemplated under Standing Order 30.More Button

Therefore I cannot grant leave to move the motions. I have to advise the House that the matter raised is not one that is likely to develop significantly before the Dáil, in practice, would have an opp...More Button

I have no control over the transfer of questions, Deputy. I am calling the Order of Business, the Tánaiste.More Button

Will the Deputy please allow the Tánaiste to proceed with the Order of Business?More Button

Not now, Deputy.More Button

Order of Business.

Is the proposal for the late sitting today satisfactory and agreed?More Button

We are taking the items seriatim. Is this in respect of the first proposal that business be interrupted at 10.30 p.m.?More Button

The Deputy should not embark on a speech. I take it the Deputy is opposing the proposal that business be interrupted at 10.30 p.m. this evening? Is that the position?More Button

No, the Deputy has said sufficient on the matter.More Button

I am putting the question: “That business be interrupted at 10.30 p.m. tonight.” Question put. The Dáil divided: Tá, 61; Níl, 15. TáMore Button

May I now ask if the proposal that the sitting today be suspended from 6.30 p.m. to 7 p.m. is agreed? Agreed. Is the proposal for dealing with No. 6 agreed? Agreed.More Button

It does not relate to the Order of Business.More Button

Before Members rise and address the House they should be called by the Chair. Deputy Deasy.More Button

Please, Deputy. Deputy Pat McCartan.More Button

Please, Deputy McCartan, one thing at a time.More Button

Please, Deputy. I call Deputy Paul Connaughton.More Button

There can be no debate on the matter now.More Button

Deputy McCartan may not ignore the Chair. He does so at his peril.More Button

It is not a matter which should be raised now, Deputy.More Button

Deputy Enright was offering earlier.More Button

I thought Deputy Enright had something relevant to raise.More Button

The matter is on the Order Paper for today and tomorrow and may not be pursued now.More Button

No, you may not ask something that is out of order.More Button

Deputy Éamon Gilmore.More Button

Please, Deputy Enright.More Button

Deputy Gilmore.More Button

I want to call Deputy Howlin.More Button

International Law (Rights of Persons with a Mental Handicap) Bill, 1991: First Stage.

Matters appertaining to legislation should not be raised now. The Deputy should put down a question in that regard.More Button

I am calling Deputy Rabbitte for a final question. I am proceeding to the Order of Business proper.More Button

I am sure Deputy Rabbitte will find a more opportune time to raise that matter.More Button

Resume your seat, Deputy McCartan.More Button

Deputy McCartan, do not ignore the Chair.More Button

I have heard it. It was not a point of order and the Deputy knows it was not.More Button

This is obviously a concerted effort by certain Members over there to disrupt the discussion of this Bill.More Button

This is gross disorder.More Button

This is gross disorder. I will hear no points of order now.More Button

Deputy Rabbitte, please. I must ask Deputy Rabbitte to leave the House.More Button

It is outrageous Deputy, I grant you that.More Button

Deputy McCartan may not interrupt from a sitting position. He is being continuously disorderly. I have to take note of that.More Button

This is quite intolerable, Deputy. If you rise again I shall ask you to leave, and I shall insist upon it.More Button

Deputy Rabbitte, please.More Button

Deputy Byrne, please. This is completely disorderly.More Button

This is a democratic assembly. The right of free speech prevails here and I will not tolerate any Member being obstructed in the manner that is being done to the Minister now. The interruptions will ...More Button

Is that satisfactory? Agreed.More Button
