First Page Previous Page Page of 78 Next Page Last Page

Deputy Paul Kehoe: Information on Paul Kehoe Zoom on Paul Kehoe Can I be helpful to the Opposition? The Taoiseach and the Tánaiste want to make a statement. The Cabinet meeting finished at 11 a.m. They will come straight to the Chamber to inform the people of the decision made by Cabinet. The Order of Business will be taken directly after Leaders' Questions. I assure Members that whatever request they may put forward will be dealt with accordingly.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin Obviously, the Government has made a decision. We have no difficulty in facilitating the Government in making a statement to the House but can it not start at 12 p.m.? It is now 11.20 a.m. and we have had absolutely no notice of this.

(Interruptions).

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin I am trying to be reasonable, constructive and to give the outside world some sense that this House and Parliament matter. I am simply asking that we start at 12 p.m. instead of 11.30 a.m., which is reasonable so that people can make an informed contribution to whatever announcement is made.

Deputy Barry Cowen: Information on Barry Cowen Zoom on Barry Cowen That is fair.

(Interruptions).

Deputy Barry Cowen: Information on Barry Cowen Zoom on Barry Cowen The Chief Whip is happy with that. Are the Members opposite happy with it?

Deputy Timmy Dooley: Information on Timmy Dooley Zoom on Timmy Dooley On a point of order-----

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Michael Kitt Zoom on Michael Kitt I hope it is in order.

Deputy Timmy Dooley: Information on Timmy Dooley Zoom on Timmy Dooley Will the Chief Whip outline what the change in the order actually is? Will he inform us of what his intention is? Will the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste come to the House to make their statements followed by at least half an hour for reflection so that the leaders of the parties have time to absorb what is stated? Can we get clarity on that?

Deputy Paul Kehoe: Information on Paul Kehoe Zoom on Paul Kehoe The Taoiseach and the Tánaiste will come to the House for brief statements, which will finish within 20 minutes. Leaders' Question will be taken at 12.15 p.m.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin That is not what I am proposing.

Deputy Paul Kehoe: Information on Paul Kehoe Zoom on Paul Kehoe If a request is put forward by the Opposition, it will be dealt with on the Order of Business.

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin The Chief Whip gave the impression that he wanted to-----

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Michael Kitt Zoom on Michael Kitt Is the question agreed to?

Deputy Micheál Martin: Information on Micheál Martin Zoom on Micheál Martin It is not agreed.
