Dáil Eireann Debate
An Ceann Comhairle: Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a number of notices under Standing Order 31. I will call on the Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office. I call on Deputy Ferris to state the matter.
Mr. Ferris: I seek leave to move the adjournment of the Dáil on the following specific and important matter of public interest: the ongoing difficulties being caused by the current fish quota regulation and the criminalisation of Irish fishermen who are finding it difficult to make ends meet under the current restrictions.
An Ceann Comhairle: Having given the matter full consideration I do not consider it to be contemplated by Standing Order 31 and therefore I cannot grant leave to move the motion. As Deputy Crowe is not in the House to deal with the matter he raised, it is not in order.
