Having considered the matters raised, they are not in order under Standing Order 32.More Button

Are we talking about the same legislation? More Button

Deputy Durkan, the Tánaiste indicated in her reply to the previous question that she was going to revert to the Deputy concerned. I am sure the same information could be furnished to your good self. More Button

The Deputy will have to find an alternative way to raise this matter. More Button

I do not disagree, but there is the Adjournment or Question Time. There are many different ways in which the Deputy can raise this matter. More Button

Is the Deputy referring to promised legislation in this area? More Button

If there is promised legislation we are now into the detail of it, which is not acceptable on the Order of Business. More Button
