Deputy Collins you have had your say.More Button

Sorry, speak through the Chair please.More Button

A question please.More Button

Sorry, we are over time. I am calling Deputy Joan Collins now.More Button

Order of Business

There are no proposals to be put to the House. I call Deputy Niall Collins on the Order of Business.More Button

Deputy McDonald, have you anything?More Button

Hold on, the normal practice is that the leaders are given preference. Cool down, Deputy Durkan, and I will get to you.More Button

Please allow the Tánaiste to reply and then you can have your chance of asking a question properly, rather than shouting at each other.More Button

That applies to you as well as the other side, Deputy Kehoe.More Button

Order of Business (Continued)

The Deputy can raise that during the debate.More Button

The Deputy cannot raise that on the Order of Business. He should table a Topical Issue matter. I would be only too pleased to consider it.More Button

Which Bill?More Button

I did not know that.More Button

That is grand. There is no point getting excited. The Deputy should just mention the legislation. That is all I ask.More Button

The Deputy should listen to the reply.More Button

The Deputy should get on with his question. We do not want a debate.More Button

I will move on to the next speaker if the Deputy does not put a question.More Button

We will discuss the Bill first and then we will see what can be done.More Button

Members cannot ask about Cabinet discussions. That is out of order.More Button

That is all very interesting but the Deputy should refer to legislation.More Button
