Dáil Éireann Debate
Vol. 465 Nbr. 1

Order of Business.

Is it agreed that Nos. 7 and 8 shall be decided without debate? Agreed.More Button

I will not allow any tendency towards debate or questioning at this stage. It is not Question Time.More Button

The Deputy will have to raise that matter at another time. It is not in order now.More Button

Deputy Cowen may not ignore the Chair. There are other ways and means of raising that matter.More Button

No, not now.More Button

There is provision for raising matters appertaining to legislation but not the nature of or the submission of reports.More Button

The matter should not lead to argument or debate now.More Button

If there is a dispute about that, there are ways of dealing with it.More Button

This is quite out of order.More Button

Deputy Burke should please desist.More Button

There cannot be elaboration of this matter now. Let us hear about the measure.More Button

That is irrelevant now. I am calling another Deputy.More Button

Deputy Martin may not embark upon a speech now.More Button

There are many ways of putting matters on the record of this House and the Deputy should choose an appropriate time for that.More Button

Deputy Martin may not continue in defiance of the Chair.More Button

Is legislation promised in that regard?More Button

I am not aware of legislation in that regard.More Button

A question should be tabled on that matter.More Button

Deputies should not refer to personalities outside the House.More Button

I thought the Deputy had something relevant to raise. I am calling Deputy Mary Wallace to move for leave to introduce a Bill.More Button

I am standing, Deputy O'Keeffe. You should resume your seat.More Button

Visit by Finnish Delegation.

Before dealing with Questions I am sure Members wish to join me in extending a cordial welcome to a delegation from the Finnish Parliamentary Committee on Finance who are happily with us today. We...More Button

Ceisteanna — Questions. Oral Answers. - All-Party Talks.

Let us try to avoid repetition.More Button

The Deputy is introducing new matter. This question deals with the timeframe for all-party talks.More Button

We are having a number of breaches of procedure. Quoting at Question Time is not in order.More Button

Ceisteanna — Questions. Oral Answers. - Strategic Management Initiative.

That is something over which the Chair has no control.More Button

I am now proceeding to questions nominated for priority to the Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht.More Button

Ceisteanna — Questions. Oral Answers. - National Heritage.

The Deputy is raising a matter which is perhaps more appropriate to another Minister.More Button

I am concerned about charging the Minister of State with responsibility which is clearly not his.More Button

Ceisteanna — Questions. Oral Answers. - Film Industry.

That is clearly a separate question.More Button

Surely such a question should be tabled to the Minister for Finance.More Button

I am sure that is satisfactory and agreed.More Button

Adjournment Debate. - Dundalk (Louth) Unemployment.

Is that agreed? Agreed.More Button
