The Deputy is extending the subject matter of the question.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Copenhagen Summit Attendance.

Many of the questions raised are more appropriate to the ongoing budget debate.More Button

Many of the questions being raised now are obviously appropriate to the budget debate.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Northern Ireland Peace Process.

May I remind the House, as I normally do, that on Tuesday only 30 minutes are provided for in our Standing Orders for dealing with questions to the Taoiseach. There are still a few questions to be di...More Button

Sorry, this is going on too long and we are not proceeding by way of question.More Button

Order. That must be the end of questions to the Taoiseach.More Button

We are well over time.More Button

Let us proceed to priority questions.More Button

There should be no point of order now, Deputy.More Button

I am sorry, Deputy, that does not arise now.More Button

I am proceeding to deal with questions nominated for priority to which a time limit applies.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Aer Lingus's Financial Position.

Question No. 10.More Button

The House should be aware of the time factor involved in dealing with priority questions.There are 20 minutes only for five questions and we cannot dwell over long on any one question.More Button

A brief question, please.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Telecom Éireann Investment Programme.

That is a specific matter and worthy of a separate question.More Button

The Deputy should table a question on the subject matter.More Button

The Deputy is going from the general to the particular. Question No. 11, please.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Financial Contributions to Political Parties.

No; I would be glad to facilitate the Deputy but Standing Orders are against him.More Button

Question No. 12, please. There is no question remaining and time is almost, if not, exhausted.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Disposal of State Assets.

One voice, and the voice only of the Deputy who tabled the question.More Button

The Deputy should not use that word.More Button

That is parliamentary——More Button

——but it is still a little doubtful.More Button

The Deputy knows full well the procedure at this time.More Button

This is Priority Question Time and the only Deputy who can raise a supplementary question is the Deputy who tabled the question. The Deputy should not intervene at all at this time.More Button

Rubbish. Has the Minister anything else to say?More Button

No, Deputy. I am dealing with disorder from you and I will not entertain a point of order.More Button

I would be grateful if you would do that.More Button

I have told the Deputy that he has not tabled a priority question and he is not entitled to intervene.More Button

I will have no argument. Minister, are you finished with the reply?More Button

Before I leave the Chair I must say that the time for dealing with priority questions is quite exhausted. I have advised the Leas-Cheann Comhairle that we will deal with Deputy Treacy's priority que...More Button

Order of Business.

The Deputy will find another way of raising that matter.More Button

This is not in order now.More Button

Deputy Martin, I must ask you not to ignore the Chair.More Button

If the Deputy persists I shall have to deal with the matter. He may not ignore the Chair.More Button

This is not Question Time.More Button

Is this promised legislation?More Button

I cannot permit the Order of Business to be turned into a mini Question Time.More Button

We have had this question many times.More Button

I call Deputy Batt O'Keeffe.More Button

Deputy Batt O'Keeffe has been called.More Button

What has this to do with the Order of Business? (Interruptions.)More Button

That matter can be raised in some other appropriate way. Deputy Molloy.More Button

Please resume your seat forthwith, Deputy.More Button

I will not hear a point of order.More Button

The Deputy did not advert to any legislation. To what legislation is he now adverting?More Button

That is another matter.More Button

Please, Deputy. I call Deputy Molloy.More Button

If the Deputy persists in ignoring the Chair in this fashion I will not call him again.More Button

To what legislation is the Deputy adverting?More Button

Is this legislation promised?More Button

The Deputy may not make a speech.More Button

Is there anything else on the Order of Business?More Button

The Deputy should put down a question on the matter.More Button

Obviously we are in some difficulty here. I call Deputy O'Rourke.More Button

I cannot compel any Member of the House to speak if he or she does not want to.More Button

Deputy Molloy, resume your seat forthwith.More Button

Not now, Deputy.More Button

Let us keep to promised legislation.More Button

If the Deputy wishes to address a question to the Minister for Health she must put it down in the ordinary way.More Button

That should be sufficient.More Button

I am proceeding to the business ordered.More Button
