Request to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.

Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a notice of motion under Standing Order 31 from Deputy Gormley. I call on Deputy Gormley to state the matter of which he has given notice...More Button

Having considered the matter fully I do not consider it to be contemplated by Standing Order 31 and, therefore, I cannot grant leave to move the motion.More Button

Order of Business.

There are five proposals to be put to the House. Is the proposal for the late sitting agreed? Agreed. Is the proposal for dealing with No. 21 agreed? Agreed. Is the proposal for dealing with No....More Button

That is not a matter for the Order of Business.More Button

That is not a matter for the Order of Business either.More Button

I repeat that is not a matter for the Order of Business. I call Deputy Stagg.More Button

That matter is not in order on the Order of Business.More Button

This matter is not appropriate to the Order of Business.More Button

I have ruled this matter is not appropriate to the Order of Business. I call Deputy Joe Higgins.More Button

I have ruled this is not a matter for the Order of Business.More Button

I have ruled on that matter. That accusation is unworthy of the Deputy. Will Deputy Stagg resume his seat and allow Deputy Joe Higgins to raise his matter?More Button

I have ruled this matter is not in order. The Deputy may have an opportunity to raise it during the day and he should use another such opportunity to do so.More Button

That question is not in order on the Order of Business. The Deputy can raise it another way during the day.More Button

The House has already agreed the Order of Business.More Button

An amendment to the Order of Business is not possible at this stage.More Button

It is not possible at this stage. More Button

An amendment is not in order. It would not make sense if every day the House agreed the Order of Business——More Button

The Taoiseach cannot agree because the question is totally out of order. I call Deputy Kenny.More Button

I will not allow discussion of this matter. It is the Taoiseach's prerogative to do that.More Button

However, it is not in order for anybody else to propose it.More Button

Obviously that is not the position in this case.More Button

The House has agreed the Order of Business and it is not in order to change it.More Button

The Taoiseach has not offered to do that so that is the end of the matter.More Button

Does the Taoiseach wish to comment?More Button

The House cannot discuss the content of Bills on the Order of Business. It is not in order.More Button

It is still not in order to discuss the content of Bills.More Button

The content of legislation cannot be discussed on the Order of Business.More Button

That matter does not arise on the Order of Business.More Button

The Deputy should put down a parliamentary question on that issue.More Button

The Deputy should put down a parliamentary question.More Button

We cannot discuss questions on the Order of Business.More Button

The matter cannot be discussed on the Order of Business.More Button

Order, please. Deputy Stagg should please resume his seat.More Button

That is not a point of order.More Button

The Minister of State or any other Deputy is entitled to make a personal statement.More Button

That is not a matter for the Order of Business.More Button

It has already been decided that the Whips will meet to discuss the matter.More Button

The matter will be dealt with by the Whips.More Button

The Deputy has already made that point.More Button

The matter has been dealt with. I am not prepared to allow further discussion. The Deputy should please resume his seat. The matter has been referred to the Whips.More Button

A meeting of the Whips is to be arranged.More Button

Further discussion is not in order. There is much business to be transacted by the House. I intend to proceed to deal with it within the next few minutes.More Button

This matter is not one for the Order of Business.More Button

The Deputy should contact my office.More Button

No, the matter is not one for the Order of Business.More Button

I am proceeding to the Business of the House.More Button
