Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher I understand there is a proposal to change the Order of Business. I call Deputy Bailey.

Deputy Maria Bailey: Information on Maria Bailey Zoom on Maria Bailey It is proposed, notwithstanding the Order of Business on Tuesday, 2 October 2018, that the Dáil shall take No. 24b, motion re report of the Joint Committee on Justice and Equality under Standing Order 114 on the amended proposals for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing a framework for interoperability between EU information systems – COM (2018) 478 and COM (2018) 480, tomorrow, without debate, immediately before the voting block.

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher Is that agreed?

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire It is not agreed. I was not expecting this. This was the proposal that was referred to the joint committee yesterday, which was to be taken after the committee meeting next week. Is that correct?

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher Does the acting Whip have any clarification on that?

Deputy Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Information on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire Zoom on Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire I am not sure I can agree to it. Reservations were expressed, although not by me, in private session of the committee yesterday and the matter was to be discussed further at a committee meeting next Wednesday. I am not sure we can-----

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher It is customary that the Chair will have a copy of it, and I do not have a copy. I am just facilitating the House.

Deputy Aengus Ó Snodaigh: Information on Aengus Ó Snodaigh Zoom on Aengus Ó Snodaigh We can do it tomorrow.

Deputy Maria Bailey: Information on Maria Bailey Zoom on Maria Bailey I am sorry, a Leas-Cheann Comhairle. It was discussed by the joint committee today.

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher I know, but the Chair does not have a copy, which is unusual. If it was discussed by the joint committee, was it discussed with the Whips?

Deputy Aengus Ó Snodaigh: Information on Aengus Ó Snodaigh Zoom on Aengus Ó Snodaigh No.

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher I might suggest that rather than take a decision now, if some clarity can be provided, Deputy Bailey can come back in about an hour. We can interrupt business.

Deputy Maria Bailey: Information on Maria Bailey Zoom on Maria Bailey I was told it was discussed today at the committee, but I will seek clarity on it and come back to the House in an hour.

An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Pat the Cope Gallagher Zoom on Pat the Cope Gallagher Not at the Business Committee, however, because Deputy Ó Snodaigh is a member of that committee. If the Deputy would obtain clarity and come back at a later stage, we will facilitate her.

Deputy Maria Bailey: Information on Maria Bailey Zoom on Maria Bailey I thank the Leas-Cheann Comhairle.
