Sentencing Policy (Continued)

The Chair has no responsibility for the answers the Minister provides.More Button

Question No. 35 replied to with Written Answers.More Button

Crime Data (Continued)

I will take a short supplementary question from Deputy Ó Laoghaire.More Button

To those who are here from County Kerry, a hundred thousand welcomes. That was Jackie Healy-Rae.More Button

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (Continued)

We will move on.More Button

We have 28 minutes left. Members on all sides of the House should not invite interruptions. If the Taoiseach wants to respond fully, I will give him the chance to do so.More Button

Let it be understood that, although we are dealing with a carryover from yesterday, no one should expect a carryover for tomorrow because we cannot continue in that way. I have a list from the Cea...More Button

We could make progress, but I am asking for co-operation. This is today's list.More Button

I ask the Taoiseach to give a short response if he can.More Button

If the Taoiseach is in a position to respond, he may do so.More Button

The Deputy should put a question to the Taoiseach so that he can answer it.More Button

Let the Taoiseach, if he can, respond.More Button

The Taoiseach or the Minister for Health-----More Button

I call the Taoiseach if he is in a position to answer.More Button

The Deputy is happy with that.

  I call Deputy Michael Collins. I ask him to be very brief as I am about to cut off-----More Button

The Deputy should ask a parliamentary question or submit it for the Topical Issue debate.More Button

We will have to have a serious look at questions raised on Questions on Promised Legislation. The matters would be more suitably raised as Topical Issue matters or in parliamentary questions.More Button

It is an appropriate question.More Button

I will not let down the last few Deputies because they waited all day, but I ask them to be brief. I call Deputy Breathnach, followed by Deputy Ferris and then finally Deputy Neville.More Button

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.More Button

Post Office Closures

I am disappointed that neither of the Ministers from the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment are here but I presume there is a good reason for that. This issue goes back t...More Button

We were mandated to make the approach to request that a period of six months be given to allow for the locals, various organisations and the public representatives to make a case to the appeals p...More Button

Post Office Closures (Continued)

I remind the House - reference to it was made by Deputies Ferris and Pearse Doherty - that when we voted on the Private Members' motion, not alone was it carried but it was also unanimous. The Gov...More Button

Acting Chairman-----More Button

Just one point-----More Button

We are just asking for an extension to allow for an appeal.More Button

I am not interested.More Button

The Acting Chairman is no angel himself.More Button

CervicalCheck Tribunal Bill 2019: Second Stage (Continued)

The Deputy is a long-standing Member of the House and I remind him that terminology such as "cowboy outfits" is not parliamentary language. The Deputy will have to find other words.More Button

The Deputy has to be careful. We have to be responsible in the House.More Button
