These are statistical questions.More Button

I will call Deputy Kenny again. I want to call Deputy Sargent who has a question down. The question is purely statistical and refers specifically to the Taoiseach's Department.More Button

I make the point that questions on Northern Ireland follow these questions. If Members start to discuss the responsibilities of other Ministers, they will not get to questions on Northern Ireland.More Button

That may well be, Deputy, but we are dealing with Questions Nos. 1 to 3, inclusive, to which I ask Members to confine themselves.More Button

That is a matter for the Minister for Finance. I will allow the Deputy's first question.More Button

Deputy Rabbitte, earlier you accused the Taoiseach of deliberately misleading the House. I did not interrupt you because of the two minute rule. I am now asking you to withdraw the remark that the Tao...More Button

Deputy, you know the rules. You are here a long time. All my predecessors have ruled in exactly the same way.More Button

The Deputy is not being harassed. The Chair has been more than lenient in allowing you to discuss the matter at all.More Button

Deputy Rabbitte, you will withdraw the remark unequivocally or you will leave the House.More Button

Deputy, you are withdrawing the remark that he deliberately mislead the House.More Button

He is withdrawing the remark that the Taoiseach deliberately misled the House.More Button

To withdraw the remark.More Button

Deputy Shortall, we cannot hear potential leaders. Only Deputy Rabbitte is entitled to ask a question.More Button
