Ceisteanna — Questions - Proposed Legislation.

These questions relate to the Department of the Taoiseach.More Button

That is more properly a question for the line Minister or for the Order of Business, rather than one that relates to legislation in the Taoiseach’s Department.More Button

If the Taoiseach is to answer during his Questions Time questions on legislation that are intended for line Ministers, he is opening a precedent.More Button

I am happy to give the Taoiseach as much latitude as he would like.More Button

Please Deputy.More Button

While I am anxious to give latitude to the Deputy, he cannot deal with individual cases on the Order of Business.More Button

The Tánaiste, on those three items of legislation, namely, the industrial development Bill, the health and personal social services Bill and the health information Bill.More Button

Is a debate or legislation appropriate to that area promised?More Button

I understand Deputy Burton wishes to raise another matter.More Button

An appropriate question Deputy, please.More Button

Please Deputy.More Button

Is there a debate promised on the issue of bank foreclosure?More Button

I thank Deputy Burton. The question is put well.More Button

Is there promised legislation in that area?More Button

There is no such promised legislation.More Button

Good. What is the other matter?More Button

It is not appropriate to comment on it.More Button

Where stands that Bill?More Button

Is there promised horse and greyhound legislation?More Button

Is legislation or regulation promised in this area?More Button

Is legislation promised?More Button

As Deputy Hogan will be aware, that is not an appropriate question to put. I understand there is no legislation promised in that area. That concludes the Order of Business.More Button
