An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Treacy  Zoom on Seán Treacy  Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a notice of motion under Standing Order 30 from Deputy Deasy. I now call on Deputy Deasy to state the matter of which he has given notice to me.

Mr. Deasy: Information on Austin Deasy  Zoom on Austin Deasy  I hereby request the Adjournment of the Dáil in accordance with Standing Order 30 so that this House can discuss the urgent and important matter of reform of the Common Agricultural Policy.
