Requests to move Adjournment of Dail under Standing Order 32

Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with two notices under Standing Order 32. I call Deputy Michael Healy-Rae. Is Deputy Healy-Rae present? As the Deputy is not in the Chamber,...More Button

Having considered the matter, it is not in accordance with Standing Order 32.More Button

However, the Deputy’s request reminds me to ask Members to switch off their mobile telephones. I have had complaints regarding interference with the recording of the proceedings of the House.More Button

I ask Members to keep that in mind.More Button

What does the Deputy’s request relate to?More Button

I apologise, I was given to understand it was Deputy Healy-Rae who wished to make a request.More Button

My apologies, the Deputy may proceed.More Button

This matter is not in accordance with Standing Order 32.More Button

Order of Business

There is one proposal to be put to the House. Is the proposal for dealing with No. 10, statements on Dáil reform, agreed to? Agreed.More Button

The Deputy should be allowed to speak without interruption.More Button

It is not funny. I ask Deputy Durkan to allow Deputy Ó Cuív to continue.More Button

Deputy Ó Cuív is on his feet and should be allowed to proceed.More Button

Deputies must let Deputy Ó Cuív have his say. The Tánaiste will deal with the matter.More Button

I ask Members to show some respect to the Deputy who is in possession. Deputy Buttimer, you are always at this. Would you please stay quiet?More Button

I ask Deputy Ó Cuív to proceed.More Button

The latter is completely out of order.More Button

If Members ask a question they should listen to the answer.More Button

Can we proceed, please?More Button

Thank you so much.More Button

Deputy McDonald is talking about the legislation.More Button

The Deputy cannot go on like this, he should ask a question.More Button

Has the Deputy a question on legislation?More Button

Would he please ask it?More Button

We are not into methods but when legislation will be published.More Button

The Deputy should ask the question. He will not be called again if he is not careful.More Button

The Deputy should ask the question. To what Bill is he referring?More Button

Deputy, please.More Button

I am calling Deputy Boyd Barrett.More Button

That is not an appropriate question.More Button

That is not an appropriate question. The Deputy should not abuse the Order of Business. We can all count.More Button

I am sure the Minister will be delighted to hear that.More Button

That is a very difficult question to answer. The Tánaiste should be given the chance to answer it.More Button

In accordance with Standing Orders, a script is only allowed when a Minister is introducing legislation. Notes may be used by a Deputy to assist a presentation.More Button

It will be through the Chair.More Button

That is useful information. I believe Deputy Higgins has already been called.More Button

It is always nice to hear from the Deputy anyway.More Button

No.More Button

He is not going to indicate whether the Minister is right or wrong. This is about legislation.More Button

This is not a debate on whether a Minister is right or wrong. This is about legislation being introduced or promised.More Button

Deputy Higgins knows that as well as I do.More Button

He already answered that question.More Button

Ask him to clarify.More Button

Will the Tánaiste clarify the matter? Is legislation due?More Button

Ministers and Secretaries (Amendment) Bill 2011: Second Stage (Resumed)

When is it proposed to take Committee Stage?More Button

You must give me a date. Is it next Tuesday or Wednesday, subject to agreement?More Button

Next Thursday, subject to agreement.More Button

Dáil Reform: Statements

I believe Deputy Coffey is sharing time with Deputy Mary Mitchell O’Connor.More Button

That is fine.More Button

Is that agreed? Agreed.More Button

I made a mistake. There is no conclusion to this debate today.More Button

No, Deputy Feighan’s time is up.More Button
