New Coinage (Twenty Pence) Order, 1986: Motion.

I have a few general remarks to make. The order, as the Minister has said, provides the necessary statutory basis for the issue of a 20p coin. I have no strong feelings one way or the other about tha...More Button

Design is most important for coins and stamps. It would seem to me that the proper course to take would be to have a design competition so that a suitable, modern design could be chosen.More Button

In his own constituency and in my own town of Kells, one of the best horses of this century and all the other famous horses could be used as well. This is only a suggestion.More Button

Oireachtas and Judicial Pensions: Motion (Resumed).

I overheard a radio programme in which Senator Ross was interviewed. He said something to the effect that it would get the Fianna Fáil Members to stand up and give their views. It seemed to me that ...More Button

Yes, there is that aspect to it. I do not deny that it is a very serious area, a sensitive area. Questions are being asked and questions should be answered, not in terms of a very short debate as w...More Button

——there is not any great time to go into it in depth. A serious motion like this should give us all an opportunity of researching the situation and going into it in depth. In conclusion, may I give ...More Button

They also hold office, as they do their seats, at the pleasure of the electorate, so there is no security of tenure as in some other employments. Then of course, there is the problem of a TD or a Sena...More Button

Free Ports Bill, 1985: Second Stage (Resumed).

Píosa an-ghairid atá le rá agam anois. Ar an dtaobh seo den Tí cuirimid fáilte roimh An mBille Saorphort, 1985, cé go bhfuil cúpla athruithe ag teastáil uainn. Tá súil agam go bhfuilimid ag dul sa t...More Button

I want to thank you a Leas-Chathaoirleach and the Minister and the House for giving me an opportunity to discuss this very important matter, even at this very late hour. We had a motion earlier whic...More Button
