The use of the word “lie” is not appropriate in the House.More Button

It is not and I would not advise the Deputy to argue with the Chair on the matter.More Button

It is not appropriate to use the word in a parliamentary democracy.More Button

That concludes Taoiseach’s questions. With regard to the question of grouping questions, I refer Deputy Rabbitte to Standing Order 39(1).More Button

The Taoiseach without interruption, please.More Button

Allow the Taoiseach without interruption, please.More Button

There is no provision in Leaders’ Questions for a further supplementary question.More Button

Allow the Taoiseach continue without interruption.More Button

Allow the Taoiseach continue without interruption.More Button

We cannot debate this matter now, as we are debating the manner in which the item will be taken.More Button

The Deputy has made his point.More Button

Is No. 4——More Button

That is not a point of order. If the Deputy has difficulties with it, he can come to my office where I would be delighted to discuss it with him.More Button

The Chair will communicate with the Deputy. He cannot come into the House to start debates on Standing Orders in the middle of putting a proposal to the House. The Deputy will resume his seat.More Button

Is the proposal for dealing with Private Members’ business agreed to? Agreed.More Button

This matter has been raised by Deputy O’Sullivan on the Adjournment and has been allowed. We cannot anticipate the Adjournment debate.More Button

The Deputy’s colleague, Deputy O’Sullivan, has raised the matter on the Adjournment and it has been allowed. It is unreasonable to anticipate the Adjournment debate.More Button

It does not arise. As the Deputy knows, he had an opportunity to raise this matter on Leaders’ Questions.More Button

The House has decided by a majority of 71 to 14 to proceed with the debate. Deputies must accept the democratic decision of the House.More Button

The Deputy will have an opportunity to debate the issue later on the Social Welfare Bill.More Button

Deputy O’Sullivan has raised the matter on the Adjournment. In fairness to the Deputy who raised it, we cannot have a debate on the issue now.More Button
