Allow the Taoiseach to finish, please.More Button

Order.More Button

Order of Business.

There are five proposals to be put to the House. Is the proposal that the Dáil shall sit later than 8.30 p.m. tonight agreed? Agreed. Is the proposal for dealing with No. 22, Budget Statement and t...More Button

I understand that is the normal procedure. Is the proposal for dealing with Private Members’ business agreed? Agreed. Is the proposal for dealing with divisions demanded on No. 22 agreed? Agreed. ...More Button

There can be no point of clarification because under Standing Orders we cannot have a second intervention on this matter.More Button

I must ask whether the fifth proposal is agreed. The Deputy can raise the matter on the Order of Business. Is the proposal agreed? Agreed.More Button

That will have to be dealt with on Friday. I call Deputy Gilmore.More Button

There will be a debate on the scheme.More Button

That is the end of that. Some leeway was allowed on the banking situation for obvious reasons——More Button

The Deputy is the epitome of the saying: “Give him an inch and he will take a yard.”More Button

The Deputy is stretching beyond a yard. I call the Taoiseach on the scheme.More Button

Three Members are offering. I hope to suspend the sitting for a short period in advance of the Budget Statement.More Button

We have moved on from that legislation.More Button

It is a pity the Deputy did not indicate when we were having that discussion.More Button

We cannot go into that now. That is not in order on the Order of Business.More Button

I call Deputy Lynch.More Button

Vocational Education (Primary Education) Bill 2008: First Stage.

Is the Bill being opposed?More Button

Since this is a Private Members’ Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members’ time.More Button

Budget Statement 2009.

Sula nglaofaidh mé ar an Aire Airgeadais, meabhraím do Chomhaltaí go bhfanann na doiciméid atáá scaipeadh maidir leis an mbuiséad faoi rún go dtí go bfógróidh an tAire iad. Ní ceart iad a thógáil ná ...More Button

The Minister without interruption.More Button

Please allow the Minister to continue without interruption.More Button

The Minister, without interruption.More Button

The Minister, without interruption.More Button

I remind the Deputy that we are not allowed to cast aspersions on people outside the House. I would prefer if you confined yourself to talking about people in the House. More Button

I am just telling you why you cannot use such an example.More Button

Allocation of Time: Motion.

Is that agreed?More Button

The format will be the same as for Committee Stage in a debate.More Button

Yes.More Button

Financial Resolution No. 3: Income Tax.

Before I call on Deputy Michael Mulcahy, as several Members are offering to contribute, I ask Members to follow the example of Deputies Enda Kenny and Ruairí Quinn in being concise and to the point. ...More Button

There is no way the Deputy’s colleague can contribute unless he concludes.More Button

I call Deputy Varadkar and remind him that the Taoiseach must get an opportunity to reply.More Button

The Deputy must deal with the financial resolutions.More Button

The Deputy must stay on the resolution.More Button

The Taoiseach without interruption.More Button

Time is very limited.More Button

Financial Resolution No. 13: Stamp Duties.

Let her finish.More Button

Let her finish.More Button

That is a matter for another day.More Button

I will put the question.More Button

Toisc go bhfuil an am a cheadaíodh don díospóireacht seo caite, ní foláir dom an cheist a chur de réir ordú na Dála.More Button

There cannot be a point of order when I am putting the question.More Button

The time permitted for this debate has expired.More Button

I must put the question.More Button

Financial Resolution No. 14: EXCISE — Mechanically Propelled Vehicles.

I will take the spokespersons first and I will do my best after that. There is very little time and I do not think I will get around to everybody.More Button

Allow Deputy Hogan to finish.More Button

The Minister will have five minutes to respond at the end of the debate.More Button

Come on now. The Deputy can raise that matter tomorrow. I call Deputy Broughan. More Button

I call Deputy Broughan briefly.More Button
