Business of Seanad.
I have notice from Senator Norris that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, he proposes to raise the following matter: The need for the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation to ...
Order of Business.
The Senator knows he may discuss the urgency of a debate on this matter but not the merits of the issue.
Address the Chair, please.
We are not debating the election.
Any decision about such a suggestion is a matter for the Committee on Procedure and Privileges and cannot be debated in the House.
The Senator's contribution is not in order. The Leader of the House will respond to the points raised on the Order of Business.
The Senator must address a point to the Leader of the House.
This is not relevant to the Order of Business.
I call the Leader of the House. Senator Ryan has already spoken on the Order of Business and it is not in order for him to speak a second time. He must accept my ruling.
That is not a point of order.
The Senator is out of order, and I ask him to resume his seat. He will have an opportunity to raise that matter on the next sitting day.
It will not be too late.
The Senator's proposal is not in order and he is out of order. I like to be as fair as possible to every Senator and I will allow him to raise that matter on the Order of Business on the next sitting...
Please resume your seat, Senator Ryan, as I have already called the Leader of the House to reply.
Disability Equality: Statements.
