Business of Seanad.
I have notice from Senator Kiely that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter: The collapse of the Clover Meats Processing Plants and the serio...
You cannot argue about the ruling of the Chair. I may listen to you later.
I am very concerned about it.
Order of Business.
It does not come up on the Order of Business. Again, the scope of the Appropriation Bill is very wide. Order of Business agreed to.
Appropriation Bill, 1984 [ Certified Money Bill ]: Second Stage (Resumed) and Subsequent Stages.
I might mention that there is only an hour and a half left for the debate and that there are more people on this list than will get in in that time. I do not want them blaming me for that. Sitting s...
I should like to mention to the House that in accordance with the Order of Business only 25 minutes remain for Members to contribute. I understand that at least three Members are anxious to contribut...
This matter was mentioned on the Order of Business this morning. At that time I paused. The matter was mentioned again before the luncheon adjournment. I am afraid I cannot help the Senator. I was...
The Senator should have been here this morning at 10.30 to protest or before the luncheon adjournment.
Will Members agree to confine their contributions to five minutes?

If we do wrong one year there is no reason why we should do wrong every year.
Unless all Members confine themselves to five minutes I cannot help them.
In accordance with the Order of the House I will be calling the Minister to reply at 3.30 p.m.
I called on you because, earlier in the day, I ruled the Senator's request to raise a matter on the Adjournment out of order. I told you you could talk about it on this Bill.
I did not make any arrangement, it is between the two Senators.
I did not make the order; it was an order of the House.
I did not change them.
I am only carrying out the order of the House.
You can speak for five minutes.
He is not here, neither is the acting leader.
It is hard enough to get into this House without leaving it.
The Senator's party agreed this morning that the Minister would get in at 3.30 p.m. and also agreed to that again before we adjourned for lunch.
It was made quite clear that the Minister would conclude.
The Minister must conclude on Second Stage.
I am only carrying out what Senators told me to do this morning.
That is unfortunate because, as I said, it is hard enough to get in here.
The Senator's time is up.
