Ministers and Secretaries (Amendment) Bill, 1966: Second Stage (resumed).

To the question “That the Bill be now read a Second Time” two amendments have been moved, one by the Leader of the Fine Gael Party and one by the Leader of the Labour Party, to delete certain words...More Button

Both amendments.More Button

I am putting the question as it has been put here for years.More Button

I remember no such thing. The Chair is putting this question as it has always been put in similar circumstances— the two amendments are similarly worded——More Button

“To delete all words after the word ‘That’.”More Button

I have no intention of sending for the Ceann Comhairle. I am putting the usual question.More Button

He did not. The question was then put in the same way.More Button

On that occasion the two amendments were put by the one question: “That the words proposed to be deleted stand.”More Button

I am not accepting the motion.More Button

Would the Deputy please listen?More Button

They Chair has no intention of departing from the procedure followed in this House.More Button

Yes.More Button

There is no question of coercion.More Button

I would point out to Deputy Corish that he can raise any point concerning the division when the Ceann Comhairle arrives to take it.More Button

Committee on Finance. - Resolution No. 3: Tax in Respect of Certain Goods (Resumed).

Order. Deputy Tully, on a point of order.More Button

Yes, at ten o'clock.More Button

It is, yes. Might I point out to Deputy Corish that the Labour Party speaker who concluded on behalf of the Labour Party spoke for 55 minutes?More Button

Yes.More Button
