(Speaker Continuing)

[An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Zoom on Seán Ó Fearghaíl]   I am sorry, Deputy Cullinane, only leaders can come in on this matter.

Deputy David Cullinane: Information on David Cullinane Zoom on David Cullinane I do not accept that.

Deputy Darragh O'Brien: Information on Darragh O'Brien Zoom on Darragh O'Brien The Deputy does not accept that he is not the Leader.

Deputy Richard Boyd Barrett: Information on Richard Boyd Barrett Zoom on Richard Boyd Barrett The Standing Order which was used to rule out a number of the proposed amendments states that the basis on which they can be ruled out of order is that they are in conflict with the principle of the Bill. How could an amendment we proposed, about ruling out under any circumstances physical infrastructure between North and South in the form of a border, not be in line with the objectives of the Bill or how could it be deemed to be in conflict with a Bill that specifies in its description that it is a Bill to deal with the potential consequences of no deal and to prevent "disturbance" to the South in economic or other terms? How could, for example, asking that British driving licences would be recognised in the South be in conflict with the Bill? It is incomprehensible and it renders the debate a sham.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Zoom on Seán Ó Fearghaíl First and foremost it is not in order to discuss this matter on the floor of the House. I am quite willing to meet anyone who wants to come to discuss with me and the Service the decisions that have been made in respect of their individual amendments.

Deputy Richard Boyd Barrett: Information on Richard Boyd Barrett Zoom on Richard Boyd Barrett On something as important as this the public needs to know.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Zoom on Seán Ó Fearghaíl That decision is not made here in this Chamber-----

Deputy Darragh O'Brien: Information on Darragh O'Brien Zoom on Darragh O'Brien Sinn Féin should not have supported Brexit.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Zoom on Seán Ó Fearghaíl ----and has never been.

Deputy David Cullinane: Information on David Cullinane Zoom on David Cullinane Deputy smart alec O'Brien.

Deputy Darragh O'Brien: Information on Darragh O'Brien Zoom on Darragh O'Brien It is true.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Aontaím leis an rún atá curtha os comhair na Dála ag an Rialtas. Táimid sásta comhaontú leis an Rialtas i gcomhthéacs an Bhille seo. Go bunúsach, tá sé i gcroílár an Bhille seo go mbeidh an tír seo réidh má fhágann an Bhreatain an Aontas Eorpach gan aon chonradh ag leibhéal na hEorpa. Is é sin an méid atá i gceist sa reachtaíocht seo. I ndáiríre, níl cúrsaí polaitíochta go speisialta i gceist anseo. Níl i gceist ach gnáthrudaí an tsaoil a choimeád slán i gcomhthéacs an Bhreatain-----

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Tá sé sin sna leasuithe.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin -----ag éirí as an Aontas Eorpach.

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Tá na leasuithe ag déileáil le cearta na ndaoine - cearta saoránaigh an Tuaiscirt.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Is é sin an méid atá i gceist sa Bhille seo.

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Níl suim dá laghad ag an Teachta na leasuithe sin a phlé.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Tá suim faoi leith agam.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Zoom on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Wait now.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Ba mhaith liom é seo a rá, a Cheann Chomhairle, más féidir liom. Tá suim faoi leith agam sna hábhair nach bhfuil díospóireacht againn fúthu an tseachtain seo de bharr an Bhille seo. Ní féidir linn rudaí áirithe eile a phlé sa Dáil. Mar shampla, ní bheidh aon Ord Gnó againn amárach ós rud é go bhfuilimid ag déileáil leis an mBille seo.

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Tá na leasuithe ag déileáil leis na ceisteanna sin.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Tá mise ag lorg gnáthsocruithe na Dála a thabhairt ar ais, fiú agus muid ag déileáil leis an mBille seo. Caithfimid bheith ionraic agus macánta anseo.

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire 100%.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Tá sé i gceist againn go mbeimid go léir sa tír seo réidh má fhágann an Bhreatain an Aontas Eorpach gan chonradh. Tá súil agam nach dtarlóidh sé sin, ach tá sé i gceist againn bheith réidh dá dtarlódh a leithéid.

Deputy Mary Lou McDonald: Information on Mary Lou McDonald Zoom on Mary Lou McDonald That is precisely what our amendments sought to do.

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Níl faic le rá ag an Teachta Martin faoinár leasuithe.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Tá rudaí eile curtha ar ceal faoi láthair ós rud é go bhfuilimid ag déileáil leis an mBille seo. Tharla an rud céanna an tseachtain seo caite agus tá sé ag tarlú arís inniu. Tá cúlbhinseoirí ár bpáirtí ag cailliúnt dá dheasca sin. Níl go leor ama againn i rith na seachtaine chun rudaí eile a phlé, mar go bhfuilimid ag déileáil leis an mBille seo.

Minister of State at the Department of the Taoiseach (Deputy Seán Kyne): Information on Seán Kyne Zoom on Seán Kyne Tá cúig uaire go leith leagtha amach inniu, deich n-uaire leagtha amach amárach agus seacht n-uaire go leith leagtha amach ar an Déardaoin chun plé a dhéanamh ar an mBille um Tharraingt Siar na Ríochta Aontaithe as an Aontas Eorpach (Forálacha Iarmhartacha), 2019. Sílim go bhfuil dóthain ama leagtha amach.
