Deputy Kenny, without interruption.More Button

Before I call on Deputy Gilmore I do not need to remind Deputy Kenny that he cannot refer to the Tánaiste as the first mate. Iarraim ar ceannaire Pháirtí an Lucht Oibre, an Teachta Gilmore.More Button

I appreciate that.More Button

Let the Taoiseach have his say without interruption.More Button
